DAY BY DAY 





g^§f*1939, a group of young men representing all the States and 
Territ75SSSPthis Nation, took an oath to "...well and faithfully discharge the duties 
of the office.. ♦" on which they were about to enter. Having taken that oath, they 
became Midshipmen in the United States Navy — the class of '43 was born. Slightly 
bewildered, a little puzzled by regulations and discipline to which they were unac- 
customed, this group — now plebes — progressed from day to day in knowledge of 
the Naval Academy and the Navy. We had taken a big step, perhaps the most im- 
portant step we were ever to take, in choosing the Navy as a profession, a career, 
a life. We set out upon a four-year voyage into academic and naval training, to 
terminate on a similar June day in 1943. But Destiny, in her ruthless manner, took 
a hand. Clouds of war darkened our horizons to East and West, and we found our 
voyage foreshortened — we were to reach port in 1942, a year early. 

On June 19, 1942 a group of young men united in thought and spirit, 
took another oath, another office. Scattered to the seven seas by the Service we 
have chosen, the Class of '43 no longer exists as such. Although we are no longer 
together in a body, the class will live in spirit until the very last member has started 
on his last, his greatest voyage. But until that day, whenever two of us meet, we 
will relive in thought and word those three short years at the Academy. We will 
recount tales of those years — reliving them Day by Day.

A year, a week, a day — each day, each week, each 
year, so vastly different and yet so similar — When 
we meet and retell our tales of midshipmen days, 
the tales will be of particular days and particular 
events. But always we will carry memories of the 
typical days of the week with their repeating class 
and drill schedules. For that reason, in order to 
better preserve those memories, we have set down 
here the typical day by day story of the typical 
midshipman. Observing no rules — for there were 
no rules to observe — we have plucked a typical 
Monday, a typical Tuesday, in short, a typical 
work-a-day week to tell the story of life as a mid- 
shipman. At times we have recorded the transi- 
tion of particular events that are treasured memories 
of us all, but on the whole this record has been made 
a typical one. Our war-shortened course has 
necessitated the use of pictures taken during years 
other than First Class Year — the one we prefer to 
remember. It has necessitated, as well, the sub- 
stitution, in places, of pictures other than those in- 
tended, for the desired ones have been censored. 
Nevertheless, we have endeavored here to preserve 
for our memory and for posterity the story of a 
midshipman day by day.

EVEILLE at 0615 on Monday morning 
starts«)ur work-day week with the dis- 
cordant note of reveille bells blasting its 
way into our pleasant dreams. Sleepy 
men in charge of room for the week 
epily report, "All turned out, sir!" to the 
reveille inspector. Then, in the scant thirty 
minutes before breakfast formation, the same 
sleepy men shave, dress, and scan the headlines 
of a morning paper. In the mess hall, the 
plebes sing the "good word" for Monday morn- 




ing, "Oh boy! Monday morning! another 
week in which to excel!" A cup of hot Java 
serves to sweep away a few of the lighter cob- 
webs that cling to sleep-starved minds, and it's 
back to the room to make beds, dust, and sweep 
the deck before formation for first period class 
—at 0745. 

It seems only fitting that we start our story of 
the typical week with an account of a typical 
Monday morning. It is on Monday morning 
that we are rudely awakened to the fact that 
there's a job to be done; and that we must 
educate ourselves in order to become officers 
capable of "fighting the Fleet" when it comes 
our turn to do so. Nevertheless we resent 
)eing separated from the charming drags of the 
previous week-end by books on technical sub- 
jects. But once again we hear the clarion call 
of duty, and once again it takes nearly all of 
Monday to penetrate and interrupt our day 
dreams of home and the O.A.O. And so we 
trudge our weary way to first period class, 
struggle to concentrate on the lesson with its 
complicated problems, and silently wish we 
were back in our bunks. Leaving class we 
march back to Bancroft Hall for §tudy hour. 
There we find, just as we expected, that we have 
received no mail — not even the old Podwik 
Agitator, as all . the home-town newspapers are 
called. Another class, noon formation, a third 
iclass, and then a drill of some sort— they drag 
>y slowly, leaving us slightly dazed and a trifle 
Confused, but happy that Monday is pasff 
Try as we might, we haven't been able to con- 
centrate. Only one thought is capable of 
penetrating the fog that veils our minds — only 
five days until Saturday and another week-end.

means of making math exams a little tougher. 



ONCE IN A WHILE the instructor found a problem that had even the expert mathematicians 
baffled. Usually we just sat and chewed our slipsticks until he took pity on us and showed us how.

WE TOOK a lot of instruction in the several subjects that make up a Math course from these 
instructors. In later courses we sometimes wished that we had gained more from their teaching. 



ON Monday morning — and nearly every 
day of the school week during the first 
two years — we went to Math. From 
Solid Mensuration to Applied Mechan- 
ics, we wore out tons of chalk and 
worked (or tried to work) thousands of 
assorted problems on the blackboards of 
Maury Hall. Those who were unac-

After two yea 

glad to "bury 

the traditional ceremony, only to see its 

spirit reappear in all the technical 

courses of our final year. 

Plebe math was probably not the 
toughest course in the Academy cur- 
riculum, but it accounted for many of 
the academic fatalities in our class 
muster. The naval officer must be a 
master of so many technical subjects — 
ordnance, electrical and marine en- 
gineering, damage control — that he must 
know and understand the basic ele- 
ments of mathematics to succeed in fur- 
ther studies. For this reason the Acad- 
emy stresses math, math, and yet more 
math, until at times the brain of the 
typical midshipman seems nothing but 
a twisted mass of x's, y's, and those ultra- 
mythical nonentities known as infini-

'cla^fflike the man who dropped his 

lece of chalk and was five problems 
behind the rest of the section when he 
picked it up, but in most instances math 
was a very serious business. Only those 
with a warped sense of humor were able 
to find material for laughter in trig- 
onometry or integral calculus. Most 
math classes were a sober affair, from 
"Any questions? — man the boards!" to 
"Knock off, gentlemen; section leader 
take charge." 

The more recent Nav P- Works have 
dulled the memories of their Math 
counterparts, but out of the dim past 
some of us do recall with a shudder those 
biweekly ordeals in the Maury class- 
rooms devoted to the science of math. 
Some day we fondly hope to hear of a 
man who has finished one in the time 
allotted. 

When we bade goodbye to the Math 
Department second class year, we won- 
dered hopefully if our contact with 
Calculus Inc. was at an end. We found 
an answer in the negative in the first 
Juice exam, and in every other course 
of our last year. 



MATH WAS FRUIT, hut even the best of us 
puzzled over those tough Mechanics probs. 



33 




ACTING OUT SCENES from Naval Phraseology was much more fun 
than the usual question-and-answer recitations and very educational. 



FOREIGN languages 








PROFESSOR STARNS tells Roy just how 
to go about putting across an idea in Spanish 
when you can't speak it as the Spanish do. 



CAPTAIN ZIROLI supervised the Herculean 
task of turning midshipmen into accomplished 
linguists capable of service as interpreters. 



34 



THE title, "Department of Foreign 
Languages," speaks for itself. It is this 
department which prepares the midship- 
men for interpreter and translator duty 
should he be assigned duty in foreign 
waters. Each midshipman takes a 
course in one of the five languages taught 
— French, Spanish, German, Italian, or 
Portuguese. The courses, though brief, 
are very complete, covering everything 
from the fundamental vocabularies and 
verb conjugations to more complex 
translations and interpretations. 

Some of us have already had oppor- 
tunity to use the knowledge we have 
gained from this department. Our 
youngster cruise took us to Panama and 
to Venezuela. Having just completed 
our first year of language study, those of 
us who were learning Spanish had quite 
a bit of sport acting as interpreters in 
the shops and stores. 

Each year an examination is held by 
the department to determine which 
members of the graduating class will 
qualify as translators or interpreters. 
The fact that a midshipman has qual- 
ified in one of these capacities is en- 
tered on his record and aids him 
materially when he becomes an officer — 
one of the practical benefits of our study- 
ing "Dago."

EVEN IN LANGUAGE CLASSES, one of our favorite pastimes was reading the little white 
slips and writing the correct answer (or a reasonably accurate facsimile) on the blackboard.

A 



T'S called Association Football in the rule book, but to us 
it's just rough, tough soccer. Requiring just as much stamina 
and conditioning as any sport, soccer demanded scrap besides. 
It isn't easy to go in after the ball with feet kicking at any- 
thing solid. The chances are too good at getting your shins 
battered. But the boys who played soccer loved the game, 
and despite the inevitable bruises they didn't hesitate to mix 
it up with the biggest or roughest of them. 

Navy has always had good soccer teams, mainly because 
the coach is little Tommy Taylor. Under his expert tutelage 
the soccer team went up against the best opponents in the 
East, and although they lost to Penn State, the National 
Champions, and Army this year, they still turned in a record 
of five wins against outstanding college teams. Throughout 
the season Coach Tommy Taylor was hounded by bad 
luck in losing one or two regulars every game from injuries, 
but in soccer Navy still had a good percentage for the year. 





Back row: Robie, Ochenrider, Pittman, Cherbak, Bennett, Adamson, Chapman, Lowe, Grosskopf. 

Middle row: Coach Taylor, Sterling, Holmes, Barleon, Sweitzer, Behounek, Koelsch, Williams, Capt. Ziroli. 

Bottom row: Sellers, Woodson, Fisher, Crawford, Andrews, Dennehy, Lazenby, Godfrey, Shepherd, Sweeney. 



Members of the class of '43 contributed greatly to this 
year's team. Al Cherbak played a consistent game at wing 
in every contest. Dick Lazenby, after two years in the 
forward line, was transferred to center half and proved in- 
valuable to the team with his ball hawking, fast dribbling, 
and long range shots. Doc Dennehy broke into the lineup 
several times during the season and closed his career by 
earning a starting assignment against Army. Bill Williams 
at half was in the thick of it every game until a leg injury put 
him on the sidelines, and John Shepard was another good 
reserve Coach Taylor could count on to keep feeding the 
ball in to the forward line. Bernie Bennett played impres- 
sively as goalkeeper, and Koelsch gave a good performance 
at wing whenever called upon. The many youngsters on the 
team gave a creditable performance during the season. 

For the first time in the history of Navy soccer a Junior 
Varsity squad was organized under the able coaching of 
Lieut. Bill Sweeney. Harry Sipe, Benny Lennon, Perry Hall, 
and Bert Thompson were the offensive stars of this team. 
The JV's had their own schedule, but their primary purpose 
was to scrimmage the Varsity. Their efforts will be rewarded, 
since from this team will come the replacements for next year. 



AL CHERBAK fights off Army to keep possession of ball. Al was intent 
on beating the Cadets for his brother, Vic, was on the opposing team.

Walker, Blalack. 

FENCERS IWDEFEATED IN DUAL MEETS 

ONE of Navy's most consistently winning minor sports is 
fencing. Last year a dual meet was lost — the first in four 
years. This year the team was hit by graduation, but still 
retained many of its best men — "Sleepy" Keeler, Gail Ellerbe, 
and Bill Metzger. 

Nowadays there is less seen and heard of fencing than there 
was when the sport was taught in classes, but every summer 
about sixty plebes find their way to the fencing loft, anxious 
to learn how they can become three-musketeerish. By the 
time first class year becomes an actuality, three quarters of 
them have dropped out. It's hard work, for the season is 
long and much training in judgment, coordination, and speed 
is needed. But the one quarter that has stuck with it has 
something to be proud of, for they have the training and 
experience which has always enabled Navy fencers to stand 
as champions. 




SABRE, FOIL, EPEE — Coach Deladrier could fight all three. 
He kept team pointing for their biggest match, Pentagonals. 

FE: WITH DUELING SWORDS, Captain "Sleepy"

FOOTWORK was all-important in fencing. Tom Wilkinson's lunge 
is successfully parried by Metzger in one of the many practice bouts.

GOLF 



FAST becoming one of the most pop- 
ular sports at the Academy, golf has in 
the past few years grown from a sport 
participated in only by the golf teams to 
one that occupies the weekends of many 
of the midshipmen. Encouraged by 
Admiral Willson's enthusiasm and in- 
terest in golf by making the course 
available to the two senior classes during 
the summer of '41 and in opening a 
driving range, those men who formerly 
had played golf a little and even many 
new "golf bugs" now turned to this 
sport for exercise during their recreation 
hours. 

With all the facilities of the Academy, 
including a nine hole course, a putting

green, and a driving range, at their dis- 
posal the golf team should be good. 
And it was. Last Spring the squad was 
composed mostly of youngsters, so this 
year the same team was back together 
again winning for Navy and Coach Bob 
Williams. Practice during the week was 
of necessity short with the course on the 
other side of the Severn, so it was on the 
weekends that the real practices were 
held. Led by Captain Dan Hunt, the 
team turned in a very successful record. 
Playing in other regular positions in the 
matches were Bill McCulley, Cabell 
Moore, Rod Dennehy, Pete Boyd, and 
Dave Maher, all far from being "dub- 
bers" at the game.

rHERE were many of us who thought 
that we were potentially groat actors, 

and a few who were sure of it. The 
latter group expended their time ami 




dramatic talent in presenting the an- 
nual Masquerader productions. 

While we have yet to find a high- 
priced dramatic scout lurking in the 
front row seats during a Masquerader 
entation, we have always been proud 
of the dramas presented by our thespians. 
1 he lissom lads with the falsetto voices 
who played the female leads usually 
stole the show, but the deep-voiced 
villains played their parts equally well.

specialized in humor. Farces were beneath their dignity; 
they preferred a more discreet brand of wit as typified by 
"Tovarich" and "Mr. and Mrs. North." Regardless of the 
type of drama they were presenting, all their efforts showed 
the results of a lot of hard work put in during those too few idle 
hours when the casts could practice. We look forward with 
interest to the day when our dramatic stars will put forth their 
efforts on a far broader stage — the seven seas.

MUSICAL CLUBS 



THE orchestra is the only refuge of the classics to be found 
in Bancroft. Roommates and next door neighbors are not 
very appreciative of that type music, especially when played 
solo. Therefore these outcast members of the Regiment 
have gathered together for the purpose of coalescing their 
individual efforts into the finished performance of a sym- 
phony orchestra. They do not confine their attention ex- 
clusively to the classics, but sometimes delve into the semi- 
classical and even sweet swing. 

Like every other hall of learning, the Academy is full of 
men who long to express their joys and woes in song. The 
Glee Club offers them that opportunity at weekly practice 
sessions as well as in the annual Musical Clubs shows. 

The smallest unit of the combined musical clubs, the 
Mandolin Club is just a bunch of men with stringed instru- 
ments who get together for a good time on those long dreary 
evenings which are so frequent at U.S.N.A. 

At the beginning of each year fifteen men are chosen to 
form the NA-io. Every man works with the idea of enter- 
taining his shipmates, and thoroughly enjoys his work. 
This year the band has furnished many enjoyable hours for 
the midshipmen at concerts, at informals, and in Smoke 
Hall after supper. Fine individual talent, a distinctive 
style, and a unique attraction in the form of a solid sextet 
have made the dance crew a knockout this year. 

Whether you like sweet or swing, one of the musical 
clubs is sure to suit your taste.

NOT A MAN in the group with long flowing locks, but the Orchestra 
goes in for long-haired music in a big way. Lovers of the classics, they 
look down on the swing fan as upon a lowly worshipper of a vulgar art. 




THE REGIMENT'S FAVORITE swing band, the NA-10, can play any 
kind of popular music in whatever style you may like, but they prefer to 
beat it out on the mellow side. Gooch and the boys give out with some jive.

STAMP CLUB 



The Stamp Club is one of the few 
hobby clubs at the academy. Organ- 
ized only a few years ago by a few con- 
scientious collectors, the membership 
has increased rapidly. At the weekly 
meetings collections are shown, private 
trading undertaken, and general dis- 
cussions held on recent news in the field 
of philately. The Club's annual feature 
is an exhibition of collections in which 
each member arranges his exhibit to at- 
tract the attention of the judges. A 
suitable prize is awarded for the best 
display, which is then mounted in gen- 
eral view of the Regiment. 




RADIO CLUB

PRES., W. R. Banks. 
V. PRES., J. J. Schmidt. 



The curtailment of all amateur radio 
transmitting was bad news to the Radio 
Club, because it meant that the three 
big transmitters were put off the air. 
Operating was ended of course, but the 
men turned their attention to rebuilding 
the radio controlled ship, designing new 
equipment and polishing the keys for 
the day the ban is lifted. The under- 
class members have loaned the club 
several excellent receivers, so new plans 
are being started for establishing a 
listening post with the intention of 
joining an amateur emergency net- 
work. With this sustained interest and 
enthusiasm, the end of the war will find 
W3ADO back on the air full of new life 
and power. 



PHOTO CLUB 



The Photographic Club, although 
only little more than one year old, has 
filled a much needed place in Academy 
extra-curricular activities. The Club 
is an outgrowth of the Movie Gang and 
became an independent organization in 
the fall of 1940. Its objective is to 
provide an exchange for the photo- 
graphic work necessary to the existing 
academy publications; to provide facili- 
ties for photographic work to interested 
midshipmen; and to improve the quality 
of this work by the grouping of talent 
and the organization of material and 
effort. In addition, the Photo Club 
provides an opportunity for the develop- 
ment of a hobby which is national in 
its scope. 



ART CLUB 



Having as its main purpose the fur- 
nishing of illustrations, cartoons, and 
cover designs for the Log and Trident, 
and answering a constant demand for 
posters, the work of the Art Club pro- 
vides an opening for any kind of artistic 
endeavor. Increasing interest in the 
club has been shown since the opening of 
the new club room in the First Battalion 
Annex. The most recent addition to the 
club's facilities is a complete Air Brush 
outfit, including the delicate brush, a 
small air compressor, and all necessary 
paints for the brush in its many uses. 



MODEL CLUB 



Although the Model Club is not one 
of the major extra-curricular activities 
at the Naval Academy, its members are 
as keenly enthusiastic about their work 
as any other such organization. The 
club represents one of the activities 
which are very closely allied to the naval 
profession. Since its conception, which 
occurred during our three years at the 
academy, it has acquired several excel- 
lent machine tools, and it has received 
contributions from interested modelers, 
thereby making its shop very complete. 
Mr. Avery, the Naval Academy model 
maker, has helped members on several 
fine exhibitions and working models, all 
of which show excellent skill and crafts- 
manship. 



FORM LANGUAGE CLUB 



The Foreign Language Club is divided 
into sections for each of the five lan- 
guages taught here — Spanish, French, 
Portuguese, German, and Italian. Each 
section has its own officers, and there is 
a president for the combined groups. 
The only requirement for membership 
is an interest in one of the languages. 
Activities such as a foreign movie re- 
quiring financial support are paid for by 
voluntary contributions from members. 
Of great importance is the opportunity 
afforded the midshipman to prepare for 
his translator's and interpreter's ex- 
aminations. If successful, these qualifi- 
cations go on his record and in later 
years he may be called upon to use his 
knowledge. 



THE ART CLUB con- 
venes to discuss, with

our best in every class, every day. 
That means more time must be spent

Study hours pass quickly, classes and

we concentrate more on nautical sciences 
than on thoughts of home, the O.A.O., 
and the like. We've a job to do, and

FTER struggling through a year 
of chemistry, most of us felt that nothing 
could keep us from those ensign's stripes. 
Then we ran into "Slipstick Willie" and 
the physics course. From vectors to 
sound, from light to magnetism, we 
worked on the assumption that "all you 
have to do is find the right formula to 
work the prob." The renowned "Slip- 
stick's" combination lectures and demon- 
stration experiments were a constant 
source of amusement, but the problems 
and questions in class gave many of us 
sleepless nights. Few have forgotten the 
weekly Skinny trees — class musters, they 
seemed at times. When they had passed 
their last physics exam, the majority of 
the class heaved a great sign of relief and 
announced "I can't possibly fail to 
finish the course now." Then we met 
juice. 

Webster might prefer to call the course 
Electrical Engineering or perhaps Anal- 
ysis ofDirecl and Alternating Currents, 
bill to US il will always remain just 
Juice. DC; was tough until we met 
AC; single phase circuits were bad until 



46 



we ran into polyphase; it couldn't get 
harder, but it did. After a month of 
Juice, the insomniasts in the class gave 
up counting sheep and starting counting 
electrons. After the third month, we 
had worked our way into alternating 
currents and they could settle down to 
watching one single electron as it hopped 
back and forth across an imaginary 
boundary line. By the end of the course, 
they were so tired out from trying to 
understand the mysteries of electricity 
that they didn't have to count anything 
to go to sleep. 

Once each week the last year, we took 
our life in our hands and went to Juice 
lab drill. With a circuit diagram in our 
hand and hope in our heart, we con- 
nected literally dozens of leads to motors, 
generators, loads, instruments — any- 
where that we could make a connection. 
After a few small displays of electrical 
fireworks, we finally learned by bitter 
experience that motors without loads are 
likely to run away and that ammeters 
are not connected "across the line." 

From the lectures of our Juice in- 



TO CAPTAIN DOWNES went the task of 
outlining our course of study in the land 
of Chemistry, Physics, Juice, and Radio.

structors and from the knowledge we 
picked up in other subjects, we slowly 
came to realize the part played by 
electrical equipment in the warship of 
today. Slowly and surely it was im- 
pressed upon us that almost every day 
new uses for juice are being found on the 
various classes of vessels that make up 



the Navy. We trust that at least a small 
part of the facts and theories propounded 
to us by "Stuka Bill" and his associates 
will remain with us until the time comes 
for us to put our electrical talents to work. 
For electricity — as any electrical engineer 
will tell you — is the field of the future. 



WE HAD TO ADMIT that the Juice instructors tried hard, but after three long years we still 
didn't know everything about chemistry, physics, and the practical side of electrical engineering.

SHORT SKULL PRACTICE, illustrated, on 
sailing tactics was held during the week before 
each race by Lieutenant Commander DeWolfe. 





PLENTY OF THRILLS are in store in han- 
dling fast, heeling dinks only inches apart with 
closely timed starts and split-second finishes. 



RACES ARE WON not only on the water but on the dock also. Strategy for each race 
was planned beforehand and hours were spent in rigging the tiny dinghies for utmost speed. 



Front row: Heselton, Sterrett, Baldridge, Captain Kunhardt, Mouton, Herring, Froscher. 

Second row: Dow, Bennett, Bryan, Schert, Metzger, Kirtland, Robison. 

Third row: Booze, Woodside, Lister, Eimsted, Trott, May, Lt.-Comdr. DeWolfe. 




SAILING 
SAILING 



EVEN after dark, they were still sailing. 
It was always a surprise to the casual 
observer to see a fleet of dinghies sail out 
of the night into the streaks of light 
thrown across the river by the flood- 
lights of Farragut Field. The sailing 
team had good reason to practice long 
and diligently, for, with the sea their 
profession and the Naval Academy their 
Alma Mater, they were expected to be 
good. To compete with the smart teams 
of Princeton, Dartmouth, Harvard, 
MIT, and Coast Guard, they had to be 
good. Ably led by Lt. Cmdr. De Wolfe, 
the squad kept the Navy burgee flying 
high with a fine record. Twenty-two 
new dinghies added to the fleet are a 
direct answer to an increased interest. 
The scientific tactics, the employment 
of wind and current to best advantage, 
the art of getting speed out of a boat, and 
the "breaks of the game" provide a firm 
basis for good competition. 




CROSS COUNTRY 



IT wasn't as though 
the men out for cross country didn't have 
anything else to do, for there was foot- 
ball and soccer, neither of which was as 
gruelling as cross country, or they could 
have just worked out in the gym every 
afternoon like many others. But they 
didn't; they made the team in Navy's 
toughest sport. Cross country required 
the extreme in conditioning and en- 
durance, and toward that end Coach 



Tommy Thompson put the squad 
through its rugged paces throughout the 
fall season. The results were six wins, 
one loss, and a fifth place in the Hep- 
tagonals against Army, Dartmouth, Cor- 
nell, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Col- 
umbia, and Pennsylvania. Captain 
Tom Turner led the Navy men to the 
finish in all the meets, but he was closely 
pushed by Buckwalter, Goode, Leehey. 
Simmons, Johnston, and Creamer.

ward that highest aim. Why, too, Navy waded through a 
victorious season in a blazing succession of triumphs. Navy 
had her stars, and due credit must be given to them, but 
the team's success was a tribute to each and every man who 
sweated his heart out each afternoon to elevate his team to 
the heights she attained. The man who stepped out on 
to the mat to represent Navy each meet deserved to be 
there. By defeating each of the four or five other men in 
his weight in hotly contested matches, he had answered all 
questions as to his right. Often the number one man 
changed from week to week. With our unexcelled coaches 
handling the wrestling strategy, Officer Representative 
Commander Decker took over the executive duties of the 
sport, scheduling an excellent series of meets; manuever- 
ing Navy into membership in the Eastern Intercollegiate 
Association; and arranging for four of the home meets to 
be held at night, placing wrestling high on the list in specta- 
tor interest and popularity at the academy. 



NORTH CAROLINA'S entry in 136 pound class quickly learned futility 
of trying to escape from underneath Earl Buckwalter with a stepover.

HOP COMMITTEE MEETS TO PLAN ONE OF THE SATURDAY EVENING SHINDIGS 



HOP COMMITTEE 

CHAIRMAN, H. L. Arnest, Jr. 

IX every class can be found a group of men who make it a 
point never to miss a hop. As a reward for such faithful 
attention to duty, their classmates elect them to the Hop 
( ommittee and award them the privilege of wearing sword 
belts to each hop as a badge of their "profession." They 
work hard before the hops decorating the dreary Armory or 
making last minute plans, particularly before special hops 
such as the Youngster Hop and the Ring Dance, but it is at 
the hop — any hop — that they really show their stuff. 



THE BUSIEST MAN in the Executive De- 
partment, Lieutenant Commander Parker 
sponsored the Hop Committee as a sideline. 





OFFICER'S WIVES took turns being hostess at our hops, and 
donned their most charming smiles as they welcomed beautiful drags. 



CLASS RIG COMMITTEE 

CHAIRMAN, R. G. Leedy. 

THE class ring — the one thing that 
all officers prize as a symbol of their 
academy days. Starting with the class 
crest, the Ring Committee's job was to 
combine it with the academy crest to 
form a ring. Designs were submitted to 
three well-known jewelers, and soon the 
project took shape. During Second 
Class Summer all three firms prepared 
sample rings. The real thrill came on 
seeing our design transformed into a 
beautiful ring. All hands examined the 
samples and after the selection came ring 
sizes and orders. Three months of 
fittings and try-ons — then — the Ring, 
the Dance, and the Girl. 





CLASS CREST COMMITTEE 



In the design of a crest there are two main considerations 
— originality and fitness for the ring. Originality, naturally, 
becomes more difficult each year, but the design which was 
finally adopted — the sacred '"43" engraved on a compass 
rose with a background of double eagles mounted on an old- 
fashioned anchor and embellished with porpoises and the 
traditional swords — more than achieved this goal. As to the 
other aim — fitness for the ring — that was the province of the 
Ring Committee — but it is certain that nothing was left to 
be desired in our crest. Chairman, R. G. Leedy. 



CLASS ORGANIZATION 

First organized as a class with representative class officers 
at the beginning of Youngster Year, we determined our class 
policies by joint decision between the executive department 
and the class itself. We were the first Youngsters to obtain 
permission to have radios for, after the early graduation of 
the Class of 1941, we became second senior class present. 

Harry Smith was Class President during youngster and sec- 
ond class years, succeeded by Willis Maxson in first class 
year. Bill Busik and Bob Besch served as Vice President 
and Secretary- Treasurer, respectively, for three class years. 




AFTER WEEKS of arguments over the best design, the Crest Committee 
finally evolved a crest of which the class could be proud (see photo).

FROM EDITOR to office boy, the staff of the Academy's only serious magazine poses for a 
photo. Their literary masterpieces reach the light of day in the quarterly issues of the TRIDENT. 




TKIIIEIT miaznE 



THE Trident Society was organized 
to encourage literary activity within the 
K' giment, to foster and produce a con- 
temporary American naval literature, 
and to discover, preserve and collect 
naval literature now in existence. The 
Trident Magazine, published bimonthly, 
is the principle means by which the 
S(X iety can cam- out and fulfill the aim 



of its founders. Like all publications of 
this nature, the Trident requires not 
only a large variety of talent and support 
from its staffs, but also requires the aid 
of members of the Regiment in submit- 
ting original essays, poems, stories, and 
pictures. The magazine has long been 
noted for its fine photographs of the 
buildings and grounds at the Academy. 
In fact, the issues of the Trident Mag- 
azine for the past few years are a record 
of the changes that have occurred in 
the Yard. 



ADVISER McLEAN and President 
Zumwalt discuss plans for extending the 
influence of the Society and its activities.

THE literary and cultural societies of the Naval Academy 
are united in one master organization — the Trident Society. 
Subsidiary groups are the Quarterdeck Society, Trident 
Magazine, Trident Calendar, Christmas Card Committee, Reef

Each club maintains its individual identity, engaging in the 
pursuit of its particular activity at weekly meetings. The 
officers of the respective clubs have complete control over 
their units of the society.

Fed memo on the current leaf of the calendar 
kept its owner off the conduct report by reminding him to fall 
in with the watch squad or kept him out of more serious 
trouble by bringing to his attention the fact that he already 
had one drag for the coming week-end. The literary men 
who edited it and the artists who illustrated it received few 
thanks from the Regiment, but loud would have been the 
wails from everyone if no new issue of the Calendar had ap-

Reef Points is an annual semi-official

All plebes are required to be familiar 
with its contents, which includes 
general information about the academy and the Navy. This 
handbook is kept up to date each year by a staff of seven first 
classmen with a large number of assistants. Copies are sent 
by many midshipmen to their parents and friends to show 
them the academy surroundings, customs, and traditions. A 
plebe must know so much of this book's contents verbatim, 
and be able to quote them at a moment's notice, that it has 
been appropriately called the Plebe's Bible.

Never before has the spoken word had such vast influence 
in human affairs. Men in all walks of life reach great 
audiences from the platform. This hits close to home for it 
is of great value to Naval officers to be able to express them- 
selves effectively. To develop the public speaking ability of 
midshipmen is the purpose of the Quarterdeck Society. 
Toward this end it has devoted all its activities, which include 
Interbattalion Debating, a Public Speaking Contest, and 
Intercollegiate Debating.

WEDNESDAY 

finds us back in stride again. We've 
dragged through Monday in low gear, 
shifted to second for Tuesday, and by 
Wednesday we slip into high gear and 
run full speed ahead. Two classes make 
up our Wednesday morning, and we 
devote at least one of the two study hours 
to a hasty review of the past week's 
Navigation assignments, prior to our 
practical work that afternoon. 



OF P- WORKS 

AID P-RADES 



After lunch, we hastily shift to white 
works, gather together our paraphernalia 
for the P-Work, and off we go, laden 
with drawing instruments, tables, celes- 
tial coordinator, et al. Over the public 
address system in roon "N," Luce Hall, 
comes the word "seats," and we turn to 
on another of the famous Nav P- Works. 
We hastily scratch our way through the 
first two probs only to have the speaker 
interrupt our train of thought with 
"Attention! Change north latitude in 
problem one to south latitude; change 
south declination of Altair to north 
declination in problem two." Only too 
quickly the two hours flee past and we've 
still three probs undone. 








56 




Now a dash to Bancroft to change uni- 
forms for the P-Rade. Cries of "Hey, 
mate, what's the uniform?" ring through 
Bancroft's endless corridors. Then, on 
the bell, we dash to Dahlgren Hall to 
form for the drill. To Worden field we 
march, then form in a line of company 
masses. Reports are made, the band 
"sounds off," the Regimental Com- 
mander gives the order, "Pass in Re- 
view," and to the strains of Anchors 
Aweigh we march past the reviewing 
officers at a smart "Eyes Right." 

Our Wednesday work day comes to a 
close as we march back toward Dahlgren 
Hall. The mumble that can be heard 
as we troop past is probably the good 
word for the plebes, "Look proud, you 
plebes, we're going home!" 

For the first and second classes the day 
is by no means through. For them, it's 
out to town for a uniform tryon, to pick 
up the latest swing recording, or to take 
in a movie. Wednesday is all right in 
spite of the P-Work and the P-Rade. 




57 




WE SERIOUSLY DOUBT that we will have much time for public speaking immediately after 
graduation, but in the future this experience may be invaluable. The talkative men finally 
get to excel : the strong silent ones breathe deeply and hope that their name will not be next. 




CAPTAIN SMALL looks forward to a day 
when his department will again play a 
stellar role in the Academy curriculum.

"IT is by no means enough that an 
officer of the Navy should be a capable 
mariner. He must be that, of course, 
but also a great deal more. He should 
be as well a gentleman of liberal educa- 
tion, refined manner, punctilious cour- 
tesy, and the nicest sense of personal 
honor." These words from the pen of 
John Paul Jones form the basis on which 
the Department of English, History, and 
Government works. It is the duty and 
Herculean task of this department to 
provide every midshipman with the 
liberal education on which the most 
famous of all Naval heroes placed so 
much emphasis. 



During plebe year the English branch 
of the department gave us a short course 
in the fundamentals of grammar and 
prose writing, and another in a study of 
the finest past and contemporary litera- 
ture. In our second and final year with 
the "Bull" department, we studied the 
technical aspects of American govern- 
ment for one term and followed with a 
short study of the history of sea power, 
concluding with a rapid-fire history 
of the growth of our Navy. 

Due to the fore-shortening of the 
course of study for the class of '43 in 
early '41, our relations with the De- 
partment of English, History, and 



Government came to an end, as far as 
classes were concerned, the time being 
devoted to studies of a more technical 
nature. One final contact with the De- 
partment remained, however. This con- 
tact was in the form of After Dinner 
Speaking. In full dress, at dinner with 
the officers of the station, each member 
of the class was given an opportunity to 
prepare himself for occasions in the fu- 
ture when he will be called upon to speak. 
A very practical method of public- 
speech instruction with good food, after 
dinner cigars, and an air of congeniality 
furnish an incentive to relaxed com- 
posure before an audience.

SEAMANSHIP HI) 

NAVIGATION 



Ol'R double department is that of Seaman- 
ship and Navigation. Actually studied as individual 
courses, these two subjects bring the midshipman 
closer to the "sea" in Navy than any others. During 
our Plebe Summer, we attended Seamanship drills 
where we learned to row cutters, to sail knockabouts, 
and to observe the basic rules of the road. During 
the winter the Navigation branch drilled us in the 
preliminaries of piloting, position plotting from 
landmarks, and the reading of charts of inland 
waters. Spring brought drills in the handling of 
V.P. boats, motor launches, and sub-chasers. We 
learned the handling of boats in formation, flag- 
hoist signals, and "man overboard" drills. 

In the summer of 1941 we started our actual 
study of Navigation, and our course in Seamanship. 
In the former we learned to compensate the mag- 
netic compass, studied the methods of position find- 
ing, and advanced into the study of star sights. In 
Seamanship classes we studied the Rules of the Road, 
mooring methods, and the other bits of knowledge 
that go to make an efficient Officer of the Deck. 
We may not remember all the details of our courses 
in these two subjects, but most of us will remember 
the struggles we had with star sights, the Nautical 
Almanac, and Rules of the Road. 



SEAMO INSTRUCTORS TAUGHT US EVERYTHING FROM RECOVERING A LOST ANCHOR TO TRYING A COURT MARTIAL 




CAPTAIN COBB succeeded in teaching us two years of Navigation 
and Seamanship in one year, but we had to burn the midnight oil.

NAV INSTRUCTORS SPENT A LOT OF TIME TRYING TO FIND ALL THE BUSTS WE MADE IN THOSE WEDNESDAY P-WORKS 




SECOND CLASS SUMMER we practiced making landings with 
motor launches until we could do the trick in anything but a gale. 



IN THE AUTUMN we climbed to the rigging loft to practice moors 
with a model under Chief "Shorty" Metzger's watchful eye. 





SUMMERTIME WAS ALSO the season for testing our abilities as 
future Officers of the Deck, as we maneuvered YP's around the Bay. 

DURING THE WINTER we played at war games in the rigging 
loft, practicing maneuvers in response to complex flag hoists.

SINCE three sets of stripers had 
to be crowded into a period of about six months, there was 
little time for each set to enjoy its enviable position. The 
first set, after returning from Christmas leave, found itself 
faced with the task of reorganizing the regiment. The 
let down which accompanies each graduation provided these 
men with numerous duties to perform. When everything 
was finally straightened out and the stripers were ready to 
relax, they were forced to retire to the unglamorous position 
of number ten in the rear rank. Their term of office ended 
with the big Washington's Birthday week-end. This set of 
stripers was unfortunate enough not to be able to strut its 
stripes at infantry drills, since they turned their suits in to the 
tailor shop for conversion long before the Executive Depart- 
ment even contemplated those sessions on Worden Field.

THE second set of stripers took 
charge of the regiment after the Wash- 
ington's Birthday week-end and were 
somewhat more fortunate than the first 
set in that they found the affairs of state 
running rather smoothly. Instead of 
returning to find that they had to re- 
build from the ground up, they had 
merely to undo what the youngsters had 
done during the big week-end. Not 
only did they avoid the post-holiday con- 
fusion, but they also had the opportunity 
to take advantage of the fact that stripers 
do not carry rifles at infantry drills. 
This advantage, however, may have 
been overshadowed by having to start 
the regiment off on another season of 
these drills. But, despite all these ad- 
vantages, even they were glad to drop 
the sack in April.

THE LOT. WEEKLY... 




AS every man is his own favorite 
hero, so is Joe Gish the favorite hero of 
the Regiment. His fortunes and mis- 
fortunes are recounted in bull sessions, 
at mess, and anywhere two or more 
midshipmen have formed a line. The 
Log, the magazine of the Regiment, puts 
the antics of the typical midshipman 
into print. It takes him to hops, where 
he is bricked, he is dragged by the Log 



READING from left to right, Editor Claude Adams and members of his assorted 
staffs ponder and talk about the problem of getting another issue ready for press. 




AT LEAST a few members of the office staff can always be found working at break- 
neck speed on afternoons when last bits of copy must he edited and sent to the printer. 



BUSINESS MANAGER VIC ATKINS frowns on 
some cartoons, which call for red ink in the ledger.

into the most fantastic situations, he is 
frapped at the slightest provocation, 
restricted, bewildered, broke — all under 
the watchful eye of the Log. Twenty- 
six times a year the Log is delivered to the 
rooms of Bancroft. Twenty-six times a 
year the midshipmen see themselves 
mirrored in the thirty odd pages of their 
own publication — pictures, stories, car- 
toons, articles of professional and recrea- 
tional interest, sports — everything in 
which the Naval Academy participates 
is represented within the covers of the 
Log. Staffed by members of the Regi- 
ment, the Log has one of the largest 
circulations of college magazines in the 
country. This can be attributed to those 
few who lose sleep and academic rank 
in directing its publication, and to the 
many who contribute to its pages . . . 
and then there are those who sell sub- 
scriptions and solicit advertising, the 
Editor-in-Chief (who also sweeps out the 
office) and the plebes who contribute 
many well-worn jokes. Despite the 
cries of "It's odoriferous" and the groans 
of "Who wrote that?*', it would be hard 
to imagine Fridav afternoon without the 
Log to bear the brunt of the week's 
pent-up criticism.

LEFTY TAKES A GOOD LEAD WHILE FRITZ waits anxiously. 
Lefty seldom stops on first since most of his hits go for extra bases. 



LET'S take a walk 
down past W'orden Field, across College 
( ek and stop near the Boat House. 
What do you hear? It's the crack of the 
bat and Navy's coach Max Bishop urg- 
ing his outfielders on as he hits them 
Qies, each one accompanied by a cheery 
"Wasn't that a dandy?" 

Baseball and Max Bishop have a 
synonomous meaning at the Naval 



Academy. Max represents the spec- 
tacular type of baseball played by the 
old "Gas House Gang" and the "Daffy 
Dodgers." It is of little wonder that 
many practice sessions wind up in the 
dugout with the squad listening to 
Max and his tales. 

With Max as a coach Navy has gained 
the reputation of being one of the better 
coached teams in the East, a team in 



MAX BISHOP, Navy's Coach.

Cooper, Al Lasater, Warren McNamara, Paul Lacy, Ed Snyder, Frank Schettino, Lefty Lavrakas. Front row: "Stinkey" Pugh, Jack Bren- 
nan, Capt. Jack Stowe, Tom Higgins, Fritz Hansen, George Casey.

which poor base running, misinterpreted signals, and "Bush 
League Stuff" are unpardonable. 

With Captain Jackie Stowe as a nucleus, Navy looks ahead 
with optimism for a successful Spring campaign. Jackie's 
play on second base is very little short of sensational and his 
familiar broad and determined stance at the plate marks him 
as a hitter to be feared. Then there is that familiar Greek, 
Lefty Lavrakas, behind the plate to cut off so many scoring- 
attempts with his perfect throws. To complete the battery, 
Navy relies on versatile Phil Hurt who came through the 
1 94 1 season with such an enviable record. 

For side arm pitching Lou Luberda usually gets the call. 
Lou's side arm delivery baffles the best of them. Out in die 
"gardens" a high brand of chatter can always be heard 
coming from right field capably occupied by Jack Brennan. 
Jack is noted for wielding a "mighty stick." 

To back up these veterans there is Jake Rupert on third 
base, big Fritz Hansen on first base, and two sluggers, port- 
sided Paul Lacy and Al Lasater in the outfield.

BASKETBALL 



TH1. most popular winter sport in 
America, basketball, ruled the roost in 
Annapolis on Wednesday and Saturday 
afternoons, when midshipmen, officers, 
guests, and spectators jammed Mae- 
donough Hall to watch a fighting Navy 
team in action. Yon could bet your 
bottom dollar that very few people from 
the Admiral right down to the meekest 
plebe left any basketball game without 
some semblance of a sore throat brought 
about by cheering, yelling, or just plain 
hollering for a team that wouldn't be 
beat. For two years we had seen 
mediocre Navy basketball teams have 
it- ups and down-, times when every shot 
seemed to drop, but more often when 
the whole team was off on its shooting, 
and even the groans from the stands 
didn't seem to help. But this year it 

different. Navy was once again 
back in the game, giving the best teams 
in the East plenty to worry about. 




BUSIK AND ZOELLER, together again on the basketball court, continued to 
pile up points for Navy. Coach Jimmy Wilson built his team around these two. 




Back: Kuntze, Assistant Coach Lt. Wolfe, USMC, Murphy, Cowdrey, Lindsley, Cameron, Coach Wilson. Middle: Patrick, Black, Busik, 
Zoeller, Lasater, Huntemer. Front: Spreen, Honour, Stivers, Lacy.

QUICK, ACCURATE PASSING thoroughly disrupted opponent's 
defense. Lacy passes to Zoeller, momentarily open under hasket.

season weakness under basket brought disaster. 



FOOTBALL SEASON WAS RECALLED as Busik shoots 
pass to teammate. Quick breaks speeded up Navy's game. 




SPECTATORS 

PACKED ARMORY 

to see Navy quintet win. 



The class of '43 points with pride to the 
fact that during their two years of var- 
sity competition they dominated the 
various athletic squads. Basketball was 
a splendid example. In that sport '43 
held four of the five first string positions 
and provided a vast majority of the 
substitutes. Co-captains Busik and Zoel- 
ler formed the nucleus about which 
Coach Jimmy Wilson built his team for 
two years. 




MOOSE McTIGHE added plenty of height to team. Under basket 
he took advantage of it and kept batting ball back until it went in.

MID-WOK 



DAY FOR THE REGIMENT 



THURSDAY might easily be called 
the "mid-week" day for the Regiment. 
The week reached a climax in the P- 
Work and P-Rade of Wednesday, and 
the remaining work seems to be all 
downhill sliding into the week-end. Yet 
we realize that the classes of the last two 
and a half work days are just as im- 
portant as the classes attended during 
the first of the week. With this realiza- 
tion in mind, we turn to the studies at 
hand. In the back of our minds, how- 
ever, we formulate our plans for the long 
anticipated week-end that seems so near, 
and yet so far. 

Those who have not already made 
their dragging plans for the week-end 
spend spare moments calling nearby 
cities for a drag; others more fortunate, 
spend their leisure time buying tickets to 
entertainments, finding a place for the 



drag to stay, or merely writing the pro- 
spective drag a build-up letter. But, in 
spite of thoughts of the pleasant near 
future, we can't seem to forget that job 
we have to do on the Pacific (nor the 
mopping-up to be done on the Atlantic) 
and we keep at our studies with a will 
in order to best outfit ourselves to be- 
come officers in the Fleet.

IN ALL STEAM DRILLS, the whole section crowds around the apparatus while two or three ambitious engineers manipulate the various

u 



LRY early in the course of our 
three-year acquaintance with the 
"Steam" Department, we discovered 
that its sole purpose was to teach us the 
hows and whys of naval engineering. 
Sometimes during those long three-hour 
sessions over a drawing board during 
plebe year we lost sight of it, but even 
then our problems were practical — all 
our drawings, or nearly all, were parts of 
marine installations. Surrounded by 
drawing instruments as we struggled 
through epicyclic trains and the rest of 
the so-called Basic Mechanisms, or buried 
knee-deep in steam tables and Mollier 
diagrams as we tackled tough problems 
in Thermodynamics, we never forgot the 
department's unfailing purpose. 

We learned some of our Steam the 
hard way, too, Is there one of us with 
memory so short that he has forgotten 
those fireroom midwatches on Young- 
ster Cruise? — they cured us, once and for 
all time, of any desire to be engineering 
officers. Four hours of tracing steam 
lines and taking salt pills, with the tem- 
perature at 1 20° and above, was enough 
to discourage even the most mechanically 
minded from thoughts of a career in the 
engine room. 

Youngster year we learned the true 
meaning of "sketch and describe." We 
bored our way slowly through an ex-

hours in the machine shop, learning the practical side of metallurgy. 



*7Ae SefurtUteat 0/ MARINE ENGINEERING 



haustive (and exhausting) study of 
boilers, turbines, reciprocating engines, 
auxiliaries — everything which might pos- 
sibly be found in the engineering spaces 
of a warship. Second class year we 
breezed through Internal Combustion 
Engines in ten easy lessons, more or less, 
and then bumped into Thermo. Hid- 
den under the awesome title of Energy 
Analysis of Naval Machinery, it did a 
good job of baffling us the very first week 
and kept us baffled right through the 
last exam. Even the tough short course 
in Damage Control seemed a welcome 
relief. 

Steam drills were varied, to say the 
least. From a two hour study of foun- 
dry workto a comprehensive study of tur- 
bine analysis we spent Steam drill periods 
collecting elusive data and making hun- 
dreds of often meaningless calculations. 
Those of us who understood the whys 
and wherefores of thermal analysis will 
probably enjoy our tours of engineering 
duty in the future; the rest of us will 
bone our M.E.I, and pray that we are 
given a smooth running engine. 



THEY ARE SYMBOLIZED not by an old school tie but by the way it is 
worn. These instructors taught us a lot of theory but will be satisfied if 
we can put just a little of it into practice. We only hope that engineering 
watches will be easier than making a passing grade on a Steam exam.

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT 

Oil 

w%S ELL do we remember our relations with the Exec- 
utive Department — morning room inspections, afternoon 
infantry drills, weekend watches ... its symbol, the D.O., 
haunted our dreams. From the day we took the oath as a 
midshipman until the moment of our graduation, it was with 
us always. The Officer of the Watch or one of his underlings 
checked constantly to see that we were turned out at reveille, 
turned in at taps, and well-behaved throughout the day. 

The department had a dual goal — to teach us how to obey 
orders and then how to give them. The former we learned 
the hard way — which of us will forget plebe year? The latter 
proved more difficult than had seemed possible; yet no com- 
plaints were heard about thai part of first class year. 

In preparation for the long sea watches that lie before us, 
we occasionally rested our weary brains from the strain of 
academics and gave our legs a workout as mate of the deck. 
We stood other watches, too, but for two long years we passed 
"the word" in Bancroft's long, drafty corridors. First class 




LIEUTENANT RICHARDS thoroughly inspected 
locker top for dust with aid of flashlight, chair. 




LIEUTENANT MILLER instructed men going on security watch on the proper 
handling of firearms, so youngsters would cause no unnecessary casualties. 




THE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT ATTEMPTED TO CONVERT CIVILIANS INTO NAVAL OFFICERS VIA THE MIDSHIPMAN ROUTE. 



sword watches were a haven of rest and quiet after long 
months of pounding the deck. 

The departments unofficial motto was "There shall be 
discipline"; there were those of us who tried to disprove it, 
but extra duty and week-end restrictions cooled our ardor. 
Its officers had the thankless task of maintaining order; they 
won few friends among us but they did their duty well. We 
were first advised, then lectured, finally reported for our mis- 
deeds. We suffered in silence; at least it was silence compared 
with what we were thinking. Now as we are ready to leave 
these guardians of Bancroft's law, we do so without malice — 
but without regrets. 

ONE OF EASIER DUTIES of Midshipman 
Officer of the Watch was making out conduct 
reports for underclassmen whom he "papped."

THE DENTISTS checked teeth at regular 
intervals, pulled or filled faulty ones.

of work for medical officers, no fun for us.

their hest to keep us in good physical shape for strenuous Academy life.

E first met the Hygiene Depart- 
ment while we were still civilians. On 
the day we first reported to the Academy, 
it was the duty of this department to 
examine us and determine whether or 
nol we were physically lit to become 
midshipmen. After we became mid- 
shipmen, we learned that this depart- 
ment was going to play the role of 
"mother" to us, in that they were to 
inoculate us with all manner of disease- 



preventing serums, repair bad teeth and 
extract worse ones, and give us a physical 
check-up every February. 

At Sick Call, twice daily, the doctors 
hear our complaints and diagnose and 
remedy the ailments; in Misery Hall they 
mend the breaks and bruises of wounded 
gladiators of sundry sports. Without 
the doctors and dentists to keep us go- 
ing, we sometimes wonder how we would 
survive at all!

HE academy has been consistently putting out excellent 
teams for the past four years — not because of the wonderful 
Har-Tru Tennis Courts and sweet sounding rackets but be- 
cause of Coach Art Hendrix who not long ago was one of the 
highest ranking amateur tennis players in the world. Since 
his arrival here the Academy teams have been unusually good, 
and this season promises to be no exception to the rule. The 
squad is raring to go and although the weather in Maryland 
remains quite cold until late in March, you can bet your 
boots that some of the team members are out batting that 
old ball around even if they have to wear sweat clothes and 
overcoats to keep old man winter away. 

Seven members of the class of '43 form the nucleus of this 
year's team and '44 has a hard hitting bunch of Youngsters 
who last year went through an undefeated season. All this 
adds up to a really fine team which this spring ought to make 
all comers sit up and take notice.

Season after season Navy teams, ably 
coached by "Dinty" Moore, are on or 
near the top of a list of competitors 
which include most of the large Eastern 
Colleges and Universities. This year 
was no exception. 

Known as the "Ham and Eggers," 
although the origin of this title has been 
lost through the years, "Dinty's" boys 
could be found any afternoon, hot or 
cold, wet or dry, going through their 
paces on Farragut Field. From the

CJWIMMING is a sport that re- 
quires almost year-round specialization for successful com- 
petition. The season in itself was short, but long before the 
meets were held, the team was working out — swimming back 
and forth across the pool, developing endurance, form, and 
speed. The long, hard hours every afternoon of the week ap- 
parently brought no results, but when tenths of seconds were 
clipped off the time every meet, there was the answer to every 
swimmer's question, "What good is it doing me?" And what 



did the swimmers get out of it all besides the self-satisfaction of 
winning against keen competition? Certainly not grand- 
stand acclaim, certainly no publicity, for all that went with a 
great team, and the swimming team this year was far from 
being the best Navy ever had. Their reward was the physical 
development, mental relaxation, and association with team- 
mates and coaches. It was tough going all the way, but the 
team said it was worth it. 

Henry Ortland lost most of his best swimmers when '42 
graduated early, so it was up to the coaches to find some 
talent in the two classes that were left. Average swimmers 
turned out to be record-breakers, and the dark-horses came 
through in Navy style. When the season ended, the swim- 
mers hadn't done badlv at all.

BOAT CLUB

Rear-Commodore: P. F. Erckenbrack 



FOR those of us who felt the call of 
the sea even during recreation hours, 
the Boat Club was an important part of 
our stay at the academy. The numerous 
craft and our proximity to the Bay made 
it possible for us to enjoy sailing to a 
maximum. Although we spent our 
plebe year in cleaning and painting the 
ketches, we eventually worked up to the 
point where we were considered suf- 
ficiently qualified to sail the larger yachts. 



83 



The ketches in particular provided 
many hours of enjoyment, especially on 
those overnight trips down the Bay. In 
addition, we had those dragging ketch 
trips on Sundays on which we had a 
maximum of pleasure with a minimum 
of expense. 

With the club we navigated at night; 
we fell overboard; we ran aground— 
but we derived all we could from each 
trip. 




THE RECEPTION COMMITTEE was busy nearly every weekend entertaining visiting teams. 
Members were excused from meal formations and certain drills when athletes were present.

PRESS DETAIL worked overtime during the football season, took life 
easy rest of the year. Trips to out-of-town games repaid their efforts. 



PRESS DETAIL 



DESPITE the fact that the class of '43 did not have the 
busy Autumn season to lead the work of our publicity gang, 
they contributed a great deal to this phase of our public 
relations work. They played a big part in the publicity 
campaign of the 1941 fall sports season, working on the public 
address system, compiling statistics, spotting for newsreel and 
radio, and helping to maintain a ship-shape press box. They 
endeavored to make the detail a year round proposition and 
succeeded in preparing those we left behind for the task of 
what might come the next fall, so that they might continue 
the good work of the detail. Director, J. A. Kriz. 



CHESS CLUB 



TO those who like to play chess at their leisure and com- 
pete in inter-collegiate matches, the Chess Club offers both 
opportunities. The club has become very popular and the 
team has fared well in its contests. Of interest is the annual 
match with West Point held at Philadelphia on the eve of the 
Army-Navy game. The schedule is always full so there is 
plenty of room for new men. Facilities for play are good, as 
are opportunities for learning. President, D. R. Jones. 



MATH CLUB 



Stopping to consider the problem of the complicated 
mechanisms of modern machines, we are forced to salute our 
brothers of the intangible world of numbers and integral 
signs. The Math Club is for the man who loves figures and 
their application to practical processes. Membership is 
almost entirely limited to men who have finished the academy

lilSIWS THE WEEK TO A (LOSE 



&, 



FR last real day of work for the 
week comes at last. It has been a long week, a hard week, 
but the realization that we arc now one week nearer our 
ultimate goal, graduation, more than compensates for the 
energy expended. During study hours we crammed for the 
classes to follow. In those classes we attempted to set down 
on paper, or to recite, the knowledge we gained by cramming. 
Our studies were hard this past week, but anything worth 
having is worth working for, and a commission is definitely

worth having! Now the week-end draws near — a p^p 
tonight, the drag arrives tomorrow, football game tomorrow, 
hop tomorrow night — it's not a bad life after all. 

Being this close to the long anticipated week-end, we can't 
help but think of it. Last minute calls to nearby cities are 
made in order to find a girl to drag to the hop. The more 
fortunate fellows with O.A.O.'s or steady drags relax and 
enjoy the frantic efforts of the late drag-arrangers. At 
evening meal the mess hall rings with cries of the good word

ORDNANCE l\ll GUMERY 



THE only academic de- 
partment for which we have no pet 
nickname is that of Ordnance and 
Gunnery, h seems sufficient to say. 
"Ordnance" -no descriptive adjectives 
are required. Perhaps this rather unique 
distinction i-^ clue to the fact that 
ordnance is one of our most exacting 
subjects, in so far as technical details and 
accuracy of computations are concerned. 
Accurate sketches, problems involving 

g irithmic rather than the usual slip- 
>tick accuracy, and minute details of 
construction, all point and aim for the 
most exacting results obtainable. 

Our Erst introduction to this depart- 



ment came in the form of rifle range 
drills. On these drills, which came 
during plebc summer, we studied and 
fired the Springfield service rifle and the 
Colt automatic service pistol. Later we 
came to the more complicated weapons 
—automatic rifles, machine guns, and 
trench mortars. On Youngster Cruise 
we met the "big brothers" of the wea- 
pons we had studied thus far. We had 
gun drills every day of the cruise. In 
hot turrets with their main battery guns, 
or on the hotter open deck in the tropical 
sunlight at secondary battery stations, 
we passed dummy powder bags or shells, 
or played the role of pointer or trainer.

control equipment, which went to the war.

AS PLEBES WE LEARNED OF BROADSIDE GUNS AND HOW THEY WORKED 





SPOTTING DRILL showed us just how 
hard it is to tell how far off the shells land. 



FIRST CLASS YEAR brought the study of plotting boards and the deeper 
mysteries of fire control, including all the amazing mechanical rangekeepers. 

R D I A I C E 



Then, toward the last part of our cruise 
we fired short-range battle practice — 
the introduction, for most of us, to big 
gun firing. 

We began the actual study of ordnance 
in the summer of 194 1, as second-class- 
men. The intricacies of smokeless pow- 
der, breech mechanisms, gun construc- 
tion, and gun mounts held us spell- 
bound and even baffled us for the dura- 
tion of the summer term. 

Then we took up the study of exterior 
ballistics with its complicated formulae, 
trajectories, and long problems involv- 
ing the use of rangetables. Sheets No. 



10, probability of hits, and drift calcula- 
tions kept us in a state of confusion for 
several months. Next in the very con- 
fidential study of range keeping we 
became familiar with the essentials of 
fire control and the actual gunnery 
problems involved in "fighting the 
Fleet." It proved to be a very com- 
plicated study but also a very interesting- 
one for most of us. Torpedo control 
and antiaircraft problems followed 
the fire control study. Although we 
realize the great necessity of studying 
as complicated subject as ordnance, we 
leave it with the least possible regrets. 




TO BE PREPARED for any kind of at- 
tack, we learned to don gas masks quickly.

V S I C A L TRAINING 



AT GYM DRILLS we learned the funda- 
mentals of boxing, wrestling, and rough and 
tumble in order that we might know how to 
handle ourselves in tight situations. Boxing 
drills like the one shown here were a good 
fast workout, but noticeably lacking in cas- 
ualties such as black eyes and cauliflower ears. 






MASS CALISTHENICS, a part of gym 
drills, are held once each week. Midship- 
men shown above are doing "stoop falls." 



NAVY'S COACHES, under the direction of 
Captain King, had the dual job of putting 
out winning teams in the field of varsity com- 
petition and keeping the remainder of the 
Regiment physically fit. They supervised gym 
drills for V-7's in morning, regular gym drills 
after dinner and worked with their teams 
during afternoon. Attached to the department 
was Medical Officer in charge of Misery Hall.

GYM, STRENGTH, AND SWIMMING TESTS MUST BE PASSED YEARLY TO AVOID MEMBERSHIP ON "SUB" AND "WEAK" SQUADS 



THE BOXING TEAM, successful during its 
two years' existence. Boxing was discontinued 
as a varsity sport after the 1941 season. 



WE became acquainted with the 
"gym" department early during plebe 
summer and we never severed our 
relationship until graduation. Most of 
us never will forget those gruesome pos- 
ture photographs taken the week we 
entered. We all had to paste them in 
the backs of our athletic manuals, which 
we were afraid to open ever after. 
Those gym drills held on the football 
practice field during plebe summer were 
only the beginning of the drills we had 
during the remainder of our course. 
During youngster year we were even 
forced to sacrifice our afternoon "happy 
hours" for the sake of short gym drills 
which occurred several times a week. 
Fortunately this practice was ended 
before too long. 

Before plebe summer was over we 
became aware of the fact that all the 
requirements to be met before gradua- 
tion were not connected with the 
academic departments. On the con- 
trary, we found that there existed such 
tortures as strength, gym, and swimming 
tests. Failure to pass these tests resulted 
in membership on the "sub" and "weak" 
squads, a fate which was almost as bad 
as getting bricked. 

After viewing our posture pictures 
taken during first class year, however, 
we were all grateful for what the gym 
department had done for us. We just 
hope that our lives will never depend on 
the climbing of a twenty-foot rope or 
the swimming of a distance of 160 yards!

ALTHOUGH boxing 
is no longer a varsity sport, it was one of 
the more popular sports when we first 
arrived at the academy from the view- 
point of both the participant and the 
spectator. During plebe summer we 
were provided some relief from routine 
by the inter-battalion boxing matches 
held in the evening. 

Our class went through an undefeated 
season plebe year and followed that up 
by placing several men on the varsity 
youngster year. In the spring of 1941, 
many eastern colleges began to drop this 
sport, and the academy soon followed 
suit. But despite this move, we still 
retain fond memories of formal boxing- 
matches and of "Spike" Webb's talks on 
the art of self-defense.

FEW 7 sports require the stamina, 
strength, and painstaking effort of crew. 
It isn't much fun rowing in freezing 
weather in order to obtain perfection, 
but these fellows go at it like a bear for a 
honeycomb. The only hard part about 
it, they claim, is the fact that they have 
all agreed not to drag during the crew 
season. 

This year only two classes will be 
participating in Varsity competition be- 
cause of the early graduation of '42. 
This may appear to be a terrific handi- 
cap, but from the looks of the boys right 
now, it certainly bodes no good for all 
crews on the academy's schedule. Lieu- 
tenant Commander "Buck" Walsh, one 
of the finest coaches in the country, is 
showing the way, and his boys are 
determined to show all hands that they 
can move along just as fast as that two

THE Naval Academy can well be 
proud of its track team which under the 
direction of Coach Thompson has so far 
set a most enviable record. The boys 
won first place in the C. U. meet and 
took second in the Southern Conference 
indoor meet at North Carolina. With 
such a beginning, the team looks for- 
ward to a successful season this spring. 
Of course only two classes, '43 and '44, 
are carrying on in the place of the usual 
three in varsity competition, but from 
all indications it doesn't mean a thing. 
Spring days may lightly turn a young 
man's fancy to love, but there are men 
whose love of the cinder path is even 
greater. Day in and day out those 
spikes churn up the track, muscles ache 
and pain, the smell of wintergreen 
permeates the cool breeze, and sweat 
just flows like rain, but those are the 
things that make our track team one of 
the best in the country.

FROM across the Severn came the sound of rapid fire; It 
wasn't an attack on the Radio Station, but just the outdoor 

rifle team keeping in practice for their matches with the 
crack service teams of the country. Navy had sonic of the 
best shots in the Marine Corps for instructors, and the ma- 
terial they had to work with had every reason to be the best. 
The result ua- that before the sport had to be discontinued 
because of lack oi' ammunition, the rifle team could be de- 
pended on to bring home the bacon every Saturday.

THE newest sport to make its appearance in Navy Athletic 
circles was small bore pistol. Enthusiastic hundreds wel- 
comed the decision to form a team, for the drills on the rifle 
range Youngster year didn't begin to satisfy the desire to learn 
to shoot the automatics. The early turnout was far above 
the capacity of the pistol gallery, so the fight for the regular 
positions on the team was hotly contested. Gradually the 
target holes centered in smaller groups, and by the time 
matches started the team had its sights set for a good season. 
Although the two upper classes won positions on the squad, 
plebes were encouraged to continue their practice on the 
side, as most of the team was in the graduating class.

FUNDAMENTALS were learned plebe summer on

IN the din of ear-splitting .22 calibre explosions and the 
tang of burning powder, a determined group of midshipmen 
has been forging, year after year, one of the best records of 
any varsity Navy team. And despite continued success, the 
small bore rifle team remains practically unknown to a ma- 
jority of the Regiment and public — for this is a sport which 
has no spectator interest. In fact, spectators are not allowed 
at the matches. Hit hard by graduation, this year's team 
nevertheless has done a great job of maintaining the winning 
traditions of preceding teams. The 1942 squad has put 
forth a maximum of shooting skill, patience, coolness, and 
perseverance, their only reward being the inner satisfaction 
of a job well done.

MOVIE GOG 



AT the beginning of our course, the Movie 
Gang was in charge of several important functions, but since 
then it has broken up to form various units. The gang de- 
rived its name from the fact that it was charged with the 
operation and maintenance of the movie equipment that 
provided the Regiment with cartoons and newsreels every 
Tuesday evening in Smoke Hall. The radio-victrola in 
Smoke Hall was also under the supervision of this group. It 
is by means of this instrument that music is furnished for the 
Sunday afternoon informals when the NA-io is not in action. 
In addition, the old Movie Gang conducted the programs of 
classical music on Wednesday evenings in Memorial Hall or 
in Smoke Park. At present the Movie Gang functions for the 
purpose of stimulating and maintaining interest in motion 
pictures. Director: W. R. Banks. 





S U I D HUT 



DIRECTOR : M. C. GREGORY 

WHEN we arrived at the academy, what is 
now known as the Sound Unit was then called the Movie 
Gang. Although this group is rather small, it is divided into 
three sections each of which has a separate function. One 
section handles the public address system on occasions when 
it is required; another presents the evening classical and semi- 
classical concerts in Memorial Hall; and the most widely 
known section provides the music for the Sunday afternoon 
informals in Recreation Hall and for the occasional evening 
programs of popular music. 

Although the Sound Unit has never risen to the heights 
as an extra-curricular organization, we can not imagine what 
the snakes would have done if they had not been able to rely 
on the Smoke Hall informals to furnish entertainment at a 
minimum of expense on Sunday afternoons. 



STAGE GANG 



EVERY time a stage production is shown in 
Mahan Hall, the little publicized group known as the Stage 
Gang goes into action. Despite the fact that a naval career 
is in no way connected with theatricals, this group is suf- 
ficiently talented to properly take care of the setting up of a 
stage for Women's Club Shows, Masqueraders, Navy Relief 
Shows, Musical Club Shows, and the June Week programs. 
The manner in which the Stage Gang handles curtains, 
scenery, props, spotlights, and the like is almost incredible 
since most of its members had never had any professional 
experience in this field before they entered the Naval Acad- 
emy. The Gang, which operates throughout the year, 
offers to midshipmen their best opportunity for practicing 
stage technique and craftsmanship. Manager: I. B. Oxley. 





JUICE GANG 



TAKING their place among the unsung heroes 
of Mahan Hall are the members of the Electrical Gang. It is 
made up of midshipmen who want to meet amps and volts 
on equal footing, and peer into the unknown. Their primary 
purpose is to furnish the electrical effects for midshipman 
stage productions, and on the side they build those unique 
signs which have become a tradition at the academy as well 
as an advertisement for any current production. To see them 
at work one merely has to drop back-stage to the little room 
marked "Juice." It is there that these juice enthusiasts hang 
out and tinker to their heart's content, and during the show 
season the place is the original mad house. But when the 
smoke clears, you can marvel at the finished product. Di- 
rector: R. J. Sammons.

WHEN the plans for the 1943 Lucky Bag were made, the 
war had not yet come close and all preparations were made 
with the idea of graduating in 1943. After consultation with 
the Executive Department the class decided to have an 
election for Editor-in-Chief. This parliamentary episode 
resulting in putting the sack in the capable hands of Owen 
Keeler. Sleepy then picked a staff and work began. Then 
the news came that '43 was to be the first three year class 
-mm c World War I. 

VOLONTE, RIBLETT, AND GOULD collaborated on Mon- 
day through Friday section, got it to press on deadline, worked 
afternoon, evenings before and after taps, and week-ends. 




This, to most of the class meant harder work on more 
concentrated study schedules, but also meant something more 
to the Lucky Bag staff. It meant that in addition to doing 
four years academic work in three years they would also have 
to do three years of publication work in two years. This 
required a perfectly coordinated system with the utmost of 
cooperation. 

Then began the actual work of publication. Time brought

gained should improve future books.

BH ich mistake, although later remedied, was costly and 
tobk valuable days of working time from "ah already shortened 
scheel le. To alleviate this condition in future publications 
of the Lucky irzro a system was worked out to include under- 
clasfflaeii as associate members of the staff. 

After the inertia was overcome and momentum picked up, 
things rolled along relatively smoothly. Work was being 
done, copy was being written, pictures were being taken, 
proofs were coming back from the printer, and each finished 
page was one step closer to a completed book. 

Work, sweat, aptitude, and, not to forget an item that 
assumed almost astronomical proportions, class numbers were 
all part of the publication of the book. It was, however, 
valuable experience and led to the making of many invaluable 
friends outside of the Naval service. These men, represent- 
atives of the several firms that contracted to publish the book 
were invaluable in the assistance they rendered and they are 
fully as responsible as anyone for making the 1943 Lucky Bag.

DEALT IN HIGH FOAMS 



ALONG with the editorial 
election the class decided that the 1943 Lucky Bag ought to 
have a Business Manager. They felt that they could put 
all their financial trust in Jack Barrett and told him so 
through the medium of a ballot. Soon after the election the 
business staff and all its various branches were organized. 
They got ready for work only to find that all the work that 
could be done at that early stage was planning and building 
pipe dreams of possible sources of revenue. 

The factor that held up production was that the preceding 
class had not yet graduated and no contracts of any sort

could be let, nor could any advertising or copies of the book 
be sold. It was a difficult situation at best and required large 
quantities of the saintly virtue of patience. 

The staff held up well, and profited by the little extra time 
because when the barriers were rolled back the staff began 
to roll forward. So well did they do their job that in spite 
of unsettled conditions, rising prices, smaller number of 
midshipmen at the Academy, and income taxes they kept the 
book on the blue side of the ledger. 

As soon as it was possible a large scale national advertising 
campaign went into action. Old fields were used as a starter, 
and when the campaign got underway, virgin territory was 
exploited. Energetic leadership plus very close cooperation

between the members of the staff made the campaign a 
success and brought more results than had been expected. 

With the advertising ball rolling the circulation staff began 
devoting all kinds of spare time to a little advertising cam- 
paign of their own to promote Regimental sales. How well 
they put the book across can be seen from the fact that by 
the time they were almost ready to secure they had exhausted 
the whole of the printer's supply of paper allotted to the 
Lucky Bag. Since the world conditions made it necessary 
for the government to ration paper it was impossible to go 
on from there. 

In every business venture there are two separate phases: 
production, and financing. How well the venture comes 
out depends largely on how well the two units coooperate. 
Close cooperation and understanding of mutual problems 
are necessary and it is only through the realization of both 
these factors that can result in a book like the 1 943 Lucky Bag. 




CIRCULATION STAFF had a representative in each company. Efficiently managed by Cowin, they boosted circulation to beat previous records 
even though book cost dollar more and regiment was smaller. Higher income made better book possible. Star salesmen, Smith and Devlin.

"FALL OUT THE DINERS!" HERALDS BEGIN- 
NING OF ANOTHER DRAGGING WEEK-END 




WIII-MI 



WE, COME OUT OFT HE SHELL 



™ THE doldrums are passed, studies become a 
forgotten nightmare, and there is nothing more 
serious on the mind of the midshipman than 
having a wonderful time with his favorite drag. 
On these pages we make a brief outline of one 
dragging week-end, our own worm's-eye-view 
of the fun and festivities. The pictures have 
been taken at various times throughout the 
making of the Lucky Bag. You will see both 
second- and first-class stripes on our classmates 
and also both blue- and white-cap covers. But 
that doesn't make any difference. It is often 
said, "Dragging week-ends at the Academy

are all wonderful, and we never tire of dragging.

To Major "Swede" Larson and his 
assistants go the credit for giving the 
Regiment a team of which it could truly 
be proud. Considering the limited time 
and the difficulties brought on by the 
condensed three year course, it is hard 
to realize how the coaching staff did such 
a fine job. They drilled the boys hard 
every afternoon under the lights of 
Farragut Field on the important funda- 
mentals. Their efforts were reflected on 
Saturdays when Navy's downfield block- 
ing gave the backs a chance to break 
into the open, or when the Navy line 
rose up to halt the opponents' drive short 
of the goal line time after time. 

Captain Bob Froude at end and 
Alternate-Capt. Dick Opp at tackle were 
two of the best defensive men on the 
team. Froude's end was hardly the 
place to try for yardage since he was 
consistently breaking through interfer- 
ence to spill the ball carrier for a loss. 
Opp had the reputation of being the 
hardest man on the squad to block, so 
his hole was capably filled. Lars Wang- 
gaard, another scrappy end, and Bill 
Chewning, All-American honorable- 
mention tackle, caused plenty of havoc 
both offensively and defensively. The 
center of the line was well braced with 
John Hill and Joe Sliwka filling guard

spots on the first two teams. In the 
backfield '42 supplied Sammy Booth, a 
hard runner and great defensive man, 
Sherwood Werner, whose specialties 
were 5 yards over the middle or high, 
spiraling, 60-yard punts, and Bob Leon- 
ard, the kicking half of the "conversion 
twins." These, together with many 
others, were the men we all knew from 
the class that graduated six months 
ahead of us. 



ON DEFENSE Navy had two 
equally reliable teams. Enemy 
passing attack was biggest worry. 




&**> A 








BILL BUSIK LED THE ATTACK the second half against Cornell. His running, passing, and kicking, made him Navy's most feared 
back throughout the season. Blocking teammates John Harrell, Al Cameron, and Vito Vicucci opened the holes. Busik did the rest.

NAVY 34, WILLIAM AND MARY o 

Navy showed off its great power in winning its opening game 
from William and Mary 34-0. Before a capacity crowd of 
18,000, the Big Blue piled up two touchdowns in the first 
twelve minutes of play. Though the Indians played a beauti- 
ful game, the invincible attack of two great Navy teams gave 
us the victory. 

XAVY 40, WEST VIRGINIA o 

With a powerful onslaught during the second half, Navy 
handed West Virginia an overwhelming defeat and established 
the right of the Big Blue to be claimed a great team. The 
hard fighting West Virginia team held Navy to 7 points for 



NAVY TIED SCORE after Army took lead in first half. Phil 
Hurt, who had played little previously, was rushed in and carried 
pigskin over after several attempts had failed to put it any closer

Before a crowd of 21,000, Navy overwhelmed Lafayette by a 

score of 1-1-2, gaining 384 yards with 15 first downs. La-

which Barnacle Bill replied a few plays later by strolling 60 
yards for another Navy touchdown. The two team power of 
Navy was unstoppable, and all hands were pointing for the 
undefeated Cornell team on the next Saturday.

The Regiment, in the midst of 45,000 spectators, saw a hard 
fighting Cornell team hold the power of Navy to a scoreless

first half with both teams playing thrilling football. The 
second half brought an unleashing of Navy's might that surged 
the sailors ahead with two touchdowns. Great line work 
by Chewning fouled a Cornell offensive in the first few 
minutes of play. Busik turned in an All-American day at 
running, and cooperated with Sammy Boothe in a beautiful 
reverse which gave Navy its first score. 

NAVY o, HARVARD o 
Harvard, the best of the "Big Three" teams, held Navy to a 
scoreless tie, apparently due to the Crimson's heavy line. 
Our most desperate try for a score, a field goal, was blocked 
by Harvard's All-American guard, Peabody, after Bill Busik 
had carried the ball to the 1 6-yard line. Navy's power was 
evident only in the comparison of first downs, 12-5, and 
yards gained, 164-80. The Regiment was conspicuous in its 
absence, where a little color and spirit from a Navy cheering 
section might have changed the score. 




NAVY 23, PRINCETON o 
Against Princeton, a lesser light this year, the score was held 
down to 23-0 only by the efforts of Princeton's captain and 
one man team, Peters. The superiority of the Big Blue was 
even more obvious in the yards gained column, where the 
amazing total of 531 yards was run up. A magnificent fight 
over the goal-posts climaxed this one. 

NAVY 13, PENN 6 
The Regiment was violently aroused before the Penn game, 
and they were out to topple the Quakers from the unbeaten 
ranks. Amidst torrents of rain and plenty of mud, the team 
did this to the tune of 13-6, by no means indicative of the 
margin of victory. Busik was kept out of most the game

because of injuries, but in spite of this, he engineered a 51 
yard march resulting in the first score, a pass from Busik to 
Boothe. Howie Clark's running, mud or no mud, brought 
the second tally, to which the "conversion twins," Bob 
Leonard and Zeke Zechella added their usual point. The 
defeat of 1941 was thoroughly and completely avenged. 

NAVY 13, NOTRE DAME 20 

One of the most exciting games of the season, despite the 
wrong end of a 20-13 score, was the battle with Notre Dame. 
The Fighting Irish depended, with good reason, on the passes 
of Angelo Bertelli to keep them in the lead. Navy has seldom 
faced such a bombardment. At the end of the third quarter, 
the score was 13-13, and at the end of the game, the ball had 
just been on Notre Dame's 2-yard line, personally placed 
there by Howie Clark, only to be pushed back with three 
minutes left in the game. Navy's two teams put on an un- 
forgetable exhibition, and the score might just as easily have 
been reversed without anyone's being surprised. 

NAVY 14, ARMY 6 
Early reveille, box lunches, Philadelphia, the Regiment be-

Again the mighty prowess of the 
Navy vamped the Kaydets from

The first half looked "bad" for

brilliantly playing Army squad 
maintaining a 6-0 lead at the first 
half. Navy was at high tide the 
second half. Coming from behind, 
Navy piled up two touchdowns in 
rapid succession. The first came 
as a result of a 101 yard continuous 
drive from the kickoff led by 
"Barnacle Bill" Busik, who placed 
the ball on the one yard line.

first Navy score. The second was some- 
what of a repetition of the first, resulting 
from a 68 yard surge for another Navy 
tally — this on a "dazzling" end run by 
little Howie Clark. Leonard converted 
as usual. "Larson Luck" in Navy foot- 
ball was cinched. The "Maj" has yet 
to be beaten by an Army eleven. 
Bill Busik — Bill won acclaim as one of 
the greatest backs in the country. His 
triple-threat ability made him the star 
of Navy's powerful attack. He single- 
handedly drove the Blue and Gold to its 
first touchdown in the Army victory. 
Bill Maxson — Bill crowded through 
tough opposition to win his berth at 
right end. His jolting tackles stopped 
numerous plays. In the Princeton game 
he made a beautiful catch for Navy's 
first touchdown. 

Johnny Harrell — Fans heard little of 
Johnny Harrell because a blocking back 
gets little glory. However, Johnny's 
clean, hard blocking was vital to Navy's 
offense, and defensively he was invaluable. 
Howie Clark — At 150 pounds, Howie 
Clark shoved around heavyweights all 
year with an inspiring display of spirit, 
drive, and courage. His elusive running 
and his passing won him permanent 
fame. 

Jim Donaldson — Center is a tough 
position to play, but Jim is a tough man.

NAVY TRADITION appears in the stands. 



His blocks opened wide holes for runners, 
and all season he never bungled a pass. 
Alex Zechella — Injuries wrecked an 
otherwise promising career for back 
Alex Zechella, so he was drafted as the 
ball-holder of Navy's reliable "conver- 
sion twins." He recovered sufficiently 
to play in the final games. 
Bob Zoeller — Rangy Bob was a great 
defensive end as well as a lightning-fast, 
glue-fingered pass receiver. This flashy 
boy leaves a big gap to be filled during 
the '42 season. 

Gene Flathmann — Gene was the big- 
gest block in the 1941 stonewall line. 
Amiable and easy-going off the field, he 
became a terror to enemy backs headed 
over his side of the line. 
Phil Hurt — Phil's specialty was un- 
stoppable bucks over the center of the 
line. He was the boy who picked up 
that all-important last yard for the first 
touchdown against Army. 
Vito Vitucci — Enemy backs were pic- 
tures of frustation trying to go over 
Vito's guard spot. This powerful "Flat- 
busher" also cleared huge paths for our 
own line-busters, 
marizes Vito's line play 
Bill Chip — A rugged blocker and de- 
fensive back, Bill turned in a great 
performance at a spot which offers little 
chance for glory. His ability and spirit 
contributed substantially to the success 
of the 1 94 1 team. 

Alan Cameron — Al, a powerful line 
plunger, intercepted more passes than 
any man on the team last fall, the most 
notable being his 35-yard touchdown 
against Notre Dame. The captaincy of 
next year's squad attests to Al's wordi 
to the team.

Fred Schnurr — Fred had the stuff to win a tack- 
le slot his first varsity year. He'll be an import- 
ant cog around whom the 1942 line will be built. 
Arthur Knox — One of the few youngsters to 
win a regular berth of the first two varsity 
teams, Knox played a consistently good game of 
ball. He will be a mainspring of next year's team. 
Dick Fedon — Dick is another Youngster who 
won his varsity spurs during his first year. 
Ending with a brilliant performance against 
Army, Dick set the stage for a great season for 
himself next fall.

Perhaps the greatest Junior Varsity team 
ever to represent the academy on the gridiron 
was this year's outfit. They put the varsity 
through its paces during the week and still en- 
countered little trouble in swamping the "B" 
squads of Pittsburgh, Princeton, and Penn 
State, scoring no points to their opponents 
none. Coaches Frank Foster, Tommy Scaffe, 
and Moose Woerner were all responsible for the 
successful performance of the team. 

Few realized or appreciated the work of 
these men who drilled the varsity for the big 
games on Saturday, but their work showed 
itself in molding a great Navy Varsity.

AFTER THE «Ulli-UII IIHIH OUT

OME on, chillun, yes dance! Lt. 
Sima and his boys will be holding dress rehearsal for the 
evening's hop. The informal is a happy affair. Navy has 
just won another football game to add the perfect touch to 
the week-end. Of course, the young lady's feet are cold, and 
you feel as though you've been on the Iceland Patrol. But 
just give the band a chance. They'll thaw you out with some 
of that hot jive. So bust it out, you hep-cats, and all you 
ickies too. It's informal time in Dahlgren Hall. 



THE INFORMAL HOP gives the best chance for dancing since there 
is plenty of room and stags aren't so virulent in the daytime. The 
dancers break out all their tricky steps and swing it to Sima's music. 




SIGNING OUT for the hop. Uniform is now full dress. Midshipmen 
have showered and, if drag is extra special, removed 7 o'clock shadow. 





PICK GIRL UP at 7:30. She isn't ready until 
8:00, but it's worth the wait, because she looks so 
beautiful in her new formal. For dinner it's 
Carvel Hall or beanery, depending on finances.

INTRODUCTION to hostess, 
usually an officer's wife. 



Ml'Sir HATH CHARMS 



THEY say that Naval Academy hops are among the most 
glamorous. Glamor or not, they have their good points. 
Lt. Sima's Naval Academy band rates with the best of them. 
At each hop he'll play everything from a smooth waltz to 
boogie-woogie beat. There isn't a band in the country more 
versatile, and many midshipmen will swear there isn't a 
band that's better in any respect. 

Of course, the hops are extremely formal affairs. Jitter- 
bugging is strictly taboo, or at least frowned upon. One 
could hardly refer to these dances as "brawls." Also on the 
minus side of the ledger is the midshipman's eternal vigil by 
the big guns cooling his heels while his drag shoots the breeze 
with other women in the powder room. But, after all, that 
happens everywhere. Worst part of it is that she spends her 
time (from all reports) talking, not about the academy and her 
drag there, but about the Dartmouth Winter Carnival or the 
wonderful week-end she just spent at a Princeton house-party. 

But when all is given up for lost, she sweeps up to her 
lonely Middie with a smile and a, "Sorry I took so long," 
and all is forgiven in the pleasure of the evening. 




POWDER ROOM, gathering place

excellent music of

END OF HOP finds youngsters standing at attention for playing of 
"Star Spangled Banner." But where are upperclassmen? Standing 
on steps by exit or long ago disappeared in the night. Tempus fugit. 

THE MAN HUNT takes an hour. Dis- 
covered at last chatting, drinking punch. 



THE music is 
smooth, it's your favorite tune, and the girl of your dreams is 
in your arms. What could disturb the bliss of this moment? 
Well, buddy, a stag can disturb bliss in no uncertain manner. 

"Mind if I cut in?" he says. Wonder what he would do if 
you said you did mind. But you figure, "Oh, well, what's 
one dance? The evening is young." 

But the evening gets old fast, and where is your drag? 
This guy that cut in, he's your friend. He wouldn't run off 
with your best girl, especially since you haven't seen her for 
weeks. Then how come you finally find him in a most in- 
conspicuous place, instead of where you planned to meet him 
an hour ago? 

But you've got your drag back, and that makes things right 
again. The band has been saving La Conga just for this mom- 
ent, and you can't resist. The evening is too short to be 
other than happy. 



buddy! Fancy meeting you like this!" 



MAD RUSH HOMEWARD. Candid 
camera suggests origin of term "drag." 



EASY CHAIR taken. "When did that 
guy get here? Always slashing throat!" 




FLYING SQIADRON 





THE tail end of the 
famous Flying Squadron. He's traveling the last long stretch 
across the yard to the safety of the Rotunda. Already the 
chimes of the Mahan Hall clock are beginning to peal. The 
D.O. waits on the steps, with watch in hand. Being late will 
cost a week-end. 

A hundred times he's vowed never again to be a Midnight 
Mercury. But every time, over and over again, it's the same 
old story. Wheezing and puffing across the yard like a 
runaway steam engine, and it all seems up-grade. Why does 
he do it? Because it's worth it, friend. It's worth all the 
agony of apprehension and of tortured breath, just to gain a 
few more precious seconds after the hop. 



DOES HE MAKE IT? Restriction list of following week 
will tell whether or not plebe messenger used that pencil.

THE CHOIR HAS THE ACADEMY'S BEST VOICES, AND OFFERS GOOD MUSIC AT THE SUNDAY CHAPEL SERVICES 



NEW CHAPEL has architectural beauty. Nave was added to hold the 
Regiment as it increased in size, then Regiment was further enlarged. 
Drags find they may have to sit with midshipmen, which breaks no hearts. 




VISITORS do not soon forget a visit to our Chapel for 
Sunday morning services. The splendid picture to the left 
displays to advantage the beauty of the new Chapel, the 
arched nave and vaulted dome. Each week there is new 
appreciation of its splendor, and new appreciation of the 
fine music of the midshipmen's choir, and of the excellent 
sermons delivered by Chaplain Thomas, Assistant Chaplain 
Dickman, or by visiting clergymen. 

Most impressive portion of the ceremonies is the singing by 
the congregation of the Naval Adacemy hymn, "For Those 
in Peril on the Sea," followed by the "Star Spangled Banner," 
as men in uniform and their guests stand at attention and 
face the flag on the altar. 



ASSISTANT CHAP- 
LAIN DICKMAN, 
affectionately known to 
all as "Holy Joe, Jr." 




CHAPLAIN THOMAS is renowned for interesting sermons. His 
humor never runs dry. His friendliness and kindness have no limits. 





SUNDAY-GO-TO-MEETING. All 
dressed up and no place to go. 



AFTER CHAPEL 



SILHOUETTES IN MEM HALL 



SOME drags attend Chapel services Sunday morning; 
most prefer to sleep in; but for all hands the traditional 
rendezvous on Sunday is the Chapel steps. In the time left 
before noon meal formation, they wander about the yard or 
head for Bancroft Hall to get out of the cold. Smoke Hall is 
the favorite hang-out, because smoking is permitted there and 
it is more informal, but this hall is a strictly first class rate. 
All hands rate the reception room and Memorial Hall, and 
parking space is at a premium on Sunday mornings following 
hop Saturdays. 




SUNDAY LUNCH is at best a scrimpy 
affair. But they make up in convivi- 
ality what they lack in formality. 
Hamburg contains enough calories to 
keep a drag living for one more day. 





THE ONE CHANCE to wear comfortable 
clothes. One reason sailing is so popular with us. 

UPPER CLASS RATE: TAKING GUESTS SAILING. 



A GOOD wind for sailing? Who cares? Not these 
salty midshipmen in their white works or their mermaids 
in crunchy sports outfits. All that matters to them is, is there 
a boat available, and will it take us out on the Severn and get 
us back? Those conditions satisfied, they're set for a swell 
two hours of sailing or drifting on the briny deep. 

WHALE BOATS ARE FAVORITES. THEY HOLD MORE WOMEN 








SMOKE HALL. There is 
nothing so futile as a 
woman with a cue stick. 



SO GOES THE REST 



"IT can't be over so soon!" But it is. Saturday and 
Sunday are winged days. But, drags gone, midshipmen will 
swing once more into academics, awaiting impatiently the 
coming of the next week-end and another round of dragging. 



GUZZLE SODAS and eat 
nut sundaes in Canteen. 




PARTING is such sweet sorrow. 
The bitterness will begin in a 
few hours, when there is sad 
realization that week-end is over.

MANY CANDIDATES stayed at Carvel Hall during gruelling 
three day physical exam. Most preferred the less expensive room- 
ing houses whose main income is from midshipmen's drags. 




BIGGEST BUGABOO of entire ordeal was eye test; hut this 
was only one phase in a physical examination which minutely 
covered every part of the hody, mercilessly exposed every defect. 




\\\i ARRIVED 




SUMMER 1939. Thegay- 
ety of June Week had hardly faded when the annual 
influx of candidates began to arrive in Annapolis. You 
remember how we came in, forty or fifty a day from every 
part of the nation; college smoothies, salts from the fleet, high 
school boys and navy juniors. Probably we were not so 
much different from the many who had preceded us; but in 
one respect we were a marked group. In that peaceful 
summer of '39 fate had already reached out and tapped us 
none too gently. We would be the first three year class in 
over twenty years; and when we left, we would be going not 
to the routine of a peacetime navy but to a fighting service. 
The first six days were bewildering. Our initial contact 
with the system was at the Administration Building. From 
there we were herded to and fro like so many four year olds 
while they "shot it to us" completely. At Sick Quarters 
where we took our physical exam we wandered from doctor 
to doctor clutching our record sheets. Finally, our eyes were 
refracted and we left wearing dark glasses. After two more 
anxious days we had been questioned, photographed, finger- 
printed, examined, reexamined, loaded with gear, and 
finally sworn in. Then, before the elation of being a mid- 
shipman had quite sunk in, we took a deep breath and plunged 
into a frantic three day period of stencilling and stowing. 
Yes, we were midshipmen, but alas, a very low variety of the 
species. Plebe summer had started. 




AFTER TAKING THE OATH '43 promptly began stencilling new 
gear and stowing it in regulation Navy manner. Biggest job was 
getting accustomed to many new restrictions, the iron bound routine. 




CANDIDATES were sworn in by groups of 
?arying sizes three days a week. Generally we 



were all taken to the rotunda about 11 :30 a.m., 
where a brief but impressive ceremony took 



place. Soon afterward we were marched down 
to the messhall for our first meal in Bancroft. 



WE BECAME 
MIDSHIPMEN 

IT had been a busy morning. We 
had finished our final checkup and filled 
out the necessary papers. Then, taken 
in tow by a second classman, we had 
drawn our initial outfits at the store and 
had been hurried to the barber shop for 
the traditional one hundred dollar hair- 
cut. Now at last we stood quietly wait- 
ing to take the oath. For many of us 
this represented the final step to weeks 
and months of preparation and hope. 
From all over the country we had come, 
drawn together by our one mutual 
desire to become officers in the Navy. 
Some of us had failed to make the grade. 
Others would drop by the wayside later. 
But for now, this moment represented 
the culmination of an ambition and at 
the same time the beginning of a career. 



But perhaps even then we did not 
understand how important this was. 
Many a naval officer must look back 
upon certain high spots which stand out 
in his career. His first command, 
graduation, the happy transition from 
plebe to youngster are only some of 
these. But there are few occasions in a 
man's life which symbolize such a com- 
plete change in his mode of living as that 
brief moment in which he stands before 
the Colors facing the fighting words of 
Lawrence, and is sworn in as a midship- 
man in the United States Navy. How 
many of us realized on that warm 
summer morning that we were putting 
the old comparatively irresponsible days 
behind. We were, in truth, dedicating 
our lives to something greater and far 
more important than any one of us — the 
service. Henceforth, our work, our play, 
our friends and associates, our success or 
failure would be integral with the Navy. 
We would learn to believe in the Navy, 
sweat for it, gripe at it occasionally, hope 
for it, and if need be, die for it. 



PERRY'S BATTLE FLAG with the fighting 
words that have become the spirit of the Navy.

NEW PLEBES double timed faithfully to all meal formations where they were inspected 
and marched to mess. Formations, as above, occurred three times a day seven days a week. 




LAST CLASS at Academy to receive old infantry instructions, '43 passed in review by

DISCIPLINE FOR 
FUTURE OFFICERS 



PLEBE summer. We learned fast, 
but somehow never became quite ac- 
customed to arising at 0615 and stepping 
into an inexorable routine that left not 
a free minute until 1630. We rowed 
cutters until our hands were blistered 
and our backs aching; we sailed knock- 
abouts; we fired rifles from every fiendish 
position of discomfort ever devised by 
unsympathetic marines. We marched 
to everything and for everyone. We 
also began to wonder if we really were 
the cream of the crop as more and more 
of our new classmates went dolefully to 
join the sub-squad, weak squad, or 
posture squad. 

It was not long before we began to 
pick up the little things that are very 
much a part of plebe year. The Navy 
was extremely particular about details, 
details of dress, or locker stowage, or 
condition of room. Accordingly, we 
squared the edges of our bunks between 
two books; we obtained a mirror-like 
shine on our formation shoes; we 
sounded off to upperclassmen; we sirred 
all seniors, squared all corners, and 
swung our arms "fore and aft." We 
kept our rooms and ourselves in spotless 
condition, and discovered the multifold 
complexities of plebe rates. Above all, 
we learned to take it. 

Under the pounding of the system 
some of us fell by the wayside. But 
gradually and efficiently this hetero- 
geneous assortment of raw civilians was 
whipped into a class. From the mutual 
sharing of hardships and good times 
arose a lasting spirit of class unity. 





CLIMBING up on the high shelf was the easiest of a series of gym tests 
which included running, jumping, and a hand over hand rope climb. 



THE POSTURE SQUAD were a select group who needed special correc- 
tive exercises. The one above brought grunts, groans, and straight backs. 



/ :■ l 




SAILING was popular. Almost everyone obtained a small boat qualification, and each after- 
noon the bay was filled with knockabouts and half raters manned by inexperienced but salty plebes.

FOR 

SAILORS 



AFTER the confusion of the first 
few days had passed, most of us began 
to enjoy the new life; the drills, the 
regular routine, the food, even the 
running we received. Best of all were 
those carefree hours that began after 
drill. Tennis, swimming, softball, sail- 
ing, any one of a dozen or more sports. 
Many of us who had never had such an 
opportunity before eagerly became

sailors in willingness if not in ability. 
But the summer passed very quickly, 
and almost before we knew it fall had 
arrived. We awoke one morning to 
scan black headlines of war in Europe; 
but a few weeks later something hap- 
pened of far more immediate import- 
ance. The Regiment returned from 
leave; the carefree summer was over, and 
ac' year had started at last.

SEAMANSHIP DRILLS were a large part of summer schedule. Besides row- 
ing and sailing we were exposed to knot tying, signalling, and maneuvering. 



LIBERTY to visit Annapolis during the summer was very rare. 
Most of us finally ended up at a teafight or the local cinema.

EVERY PERIOD every day the long lines formed, counted off, and swung briskly into a 
column of fours and marched across the terrace down Stribling Walk to recitations or drills. 





VIOLATIONS of plebe rates such as forget- SITTING on the small green bench was a 
ting to square corners rarely went unnoticed. pastime frowned on by the Exec Department. 



WHEN ac' year started we learned 
what we had already begun to suspect; 
namely, that Annapolis was not always 
a composite of June Week, Army-Navy 
games, and beautiful drags, although a 
limited number of the latter did exist. 
Our main purpose was to become naval 
officers, and accordingly, academic sub- 
jects took up the major part of our 
waking hours. For the rest of our career 
we were on a competitive basis. We 
found out who were the savoirs, learned 
the dread of the weekly tree, the scarcity 
of "4.0's" and the machine-like ruthless- 
ness of all the academic departments. 

We also discovered that plebe rates 
were meant to be observed. Our in- 
doctrination went on not only in the 
classroom, but everywhere and all the 
time. In the corridors, in our rooms, 
at meals and formations, we were con- 
tinually being braced up, admonished, 
warned, or punished. 

Still, we enjoyed many good times. 
We found a large variety of plebe sports 
or other activities; liberty every Satur- 
day was pleasant; and the first class even 
became human at times and allowed us 
to carry on. 



EVENING STUDY HOURS were always subject to interruptions by numerous individuals on watch. When any senior entered the room we 
dropped stipsticks, came to attention, sounded off. Maximum use of our time was necessary to do regular work plus questions from the upperclass.

KETCH TRIPS gave an opportunity to get away from it all tempor- 
arily and also offered a realistic touch of life on the bounding main. 



BUT FOUND 
TIME TO PLAY 




FOOTBALL season and the away games were a lot 
of fun. Few will forget the spine-tingling thrill that hit 
each of us as we swung into Municipal Stadium for our first 
Army game. After that it was only a little while till leave. 
That first Xmas leave was probably one of the best we'll 
ever have. But all too soon we were back at Bancroft 
and facing a new year. 



JAPANESE BELL rang after the Army game for the first time in 
three years. '43 never saw Army win; acquired bathrobes from cadets. 

PLEBE XMAS LEAVE was short but sweet, gave '43 the chance to 
shed lowliness, acquire glamour in the home town as a midshipman. 




THE CANTEEN was always popular with plebes throughout the year. 
Here we could enjoy a sundae, relax over a skag, and forget plebe year. 







! <^.

AT THE TABLES the plebes received much of their indoctrination as midshipmen. They answered countless professional questions, learned 
about the Navy, the Academy and other subjects. They also amused upper class, when the Officer of the Watch was distant, with air raid drills. 




WHALEBOAT SAILING was increasingly popular in the spring. 
The more enthusiastic plebes took part in Sunday morning races. 

NO MORE RIVERS was held in a steady drizzle. Plebes, all ex- 
pert stooges, cooperated enthusiastically, made it best in years. 





STEERING OARS on a life boat were often hard to handle. Practice life 
boat drill such as this was to be useful in the future on youngster cruise. 

PLEBE JUNE WEEK seemed to consist mostly of dress parades. Ayers 
carried the bouquet for the color girl who was also his first classman's drag. 




WHITE (APS AND SPRIJG 



THE first sizable casualty list for '43 resulted from the 
second bimonthly exams which we encountered soon after 
we returned from leave. Then, dazed by the large numbers 
of our class relegated to the great outside, we paused only 
long enough to be hit again, this time by the February 
physicals. But once safely over these two obstacles the home 
stretch lay clear and straight before us. At the end was the 
golden day when there would be "no mo' plebes." 

Spring approached and white cap covers again appeared. 
The days rolled on, faster than ever before. By now, we the 
hardened survivors, were getting impatient with our lowly 
status and beginning to look forward to June and that precious 
one gold stripe. When hundredth night arrived '43 for the 
first time got a taste of how it felt to be "dishing it out." 
After months of plebedom this was our night. Enthusiastically 
we made the most of it. It was a worn and weary group of 
first class whom we finally permitted to leave the mess hall. 

Exams again came and passed. Plebes took part in "No 
More Rivers," held in a drizzling rain. Company competition 
became close and hot, and when drill week arrived it was a 
see-saw race between the second and the eleventh, with the 
second winning in a last spurt. Finally it was June Week.

WITH SPRING came white cap covers, also sudden activity from 
the youngsters who unofficially aroused plebes at peculiar hours.

FULL DRESS JACKETS, dripping with perspiration after colorful but torrid dress parades, were reversed, hung in windows to dry. Weary 
plebes who furnished much of background but received few of the pleasures of June Week looked forward to emancipation, cruise, and then leave.

year was almost over; there remained 
but the brief ceremony of graduation. 
Ahead of us was cruise, leave, and two 
more years at the academy before we 
could take our places in a fighting fleet. 
But now we lived only for the moment. 
Under a warm June sun we waited 
patiently as one by one '40 graduated. 
Then, when four hundred new ensigns 
had tossed a geyser of white caps into 
the air we realized that at last we were 
third class. As one seething mass we 
burst out of the stands, boiled across the 
field, past Dahlgren, past the "supe's" 
house, through the yard. There, 
frenzied and snake dancing, with full 
dress blou inside out and caps on back- 
wards, the wave flooded jubilantly 
around Herndon monument. '43 had 
come of age.

AID WE BECAME 
YOUNGSTERS 

^HE thoughts 
of all hands turned from fair maidens to 
buxom battlewagons and rumor was/ 
rife as to when and where our liberties 
were to be granted by our Patron 
Father, the Navy Department. A cruise 
to Europe was shadowed by war and 
scuttlebutt had it — straight from the 
famed circular file in the Commandant's 
office — that rowboats were to be com- 
mandeered and short jaunts to Norfolk 
were in the offing. However, June 
Week, with its rainy hop evenings, 
brought good — or bad, depending on 
which way you look at it — tidings in the 
form of the Atlantic Practice Squadron, 
the U.S.S. Arkansas , the U.S.S. Texas, 
and the U.S.S. New York, and '41 and 
'43 began to stow gear. Our last 
morning ashore we formed and marched 
to the dock, the band played, The Girl 1 
Left Behind Me, and the launches shoved 
off — officially embarking us on THE 
CRUISE. We went aboard with slight 
misgivings which were soon verified by 
the first glance at lockers, originally des- 
tined to be ditty boxes, but decreed by 
Cruel Fate to have the contents of 
three laundry bags stowed therein! !

unreasonable, the country a strange 
mixture of the ancient and modern.

FOUR weeks of sweet freedom, of nights with moons 
and not math, of inner springs and not hammocks, of

in a bid for our time. Leave was over far too soon, but 
such would have been the cry in any case, and so we

returned, heavy-hearted and dropping from exhaustion. 
(The function of leave is to give one a rest. Note: to 
the Editor's knowledge, this statement has never been 
proven.) With the broken bits of our hearts in our pock- 
ets, and a happy air of utter dejection, we opened our 
cruise boxes and looked for a broom — and a plebe. 

EXPRESSIONS OF JOY over return were not numerous, but a few 
hours of sleep and a good bull session usually restored the zest for living.

CONTINUOUS NOISE of steam shovels and pile drivers marked THE SPEED of construction was amazing to all. The building seemed to grow by 
early stages of construction. Concrete came in big trucks. the hour. Big annoyance was the oozy mud formed by numerous spring downpours. 



FINISHED PRODUCT WAS NOT INHABITED UNTIL WE RETURNED AS SECOND CLASS 




MEW CONSTRUCTION 



DUE to the increased size of the 
Regiment, two new wings were added 
to the then enormous floor space of the 
hovel we called home. When we re- 
turned from the Cruise, the building had 
begun and we attempted to work to the 
accompaniment of steam shovels, pile 
drivers, and other associated noise mak- 
ing devices designed as hazards to study. 
We watched with keen interest the pour- 
ing of the concrete and erection of new 
scaffolding almost before it had dried. 
Unconsciously we cheered on the wing 
that lagged behind the other, speculating 
the while on what new and desirable 
features were to find a place in our new 
home. To study was well nigh im- 
possible with the engrossing process of 
building the wings so divertingly close. 
However, new decks were added with 
startling rapidity and the job was 
rushed to completion in little more than 
a year. Gone was the winding walk to 
the seawall and the beautiful terrace, 
but the symmetry and graciousness of 
Bancroft Hall was preserved.

WOODEN SHIPS 
ill) IRON MEN 



BEGINNING with the presenta- 
tion of the VAMARIE in 1938, the Boat 
Club began to acquire other craft which 
were worthy to race any vessel of their 
class under any conditions. Upon our 
return from leave, the HIGHLAND 
LIGHT, SPINDRIFT, and FREEDOM 
had been added to the collection and 
their ableness was soon proven. The 
VAMARIE was an old hand at ocean 
racing, exuding confidence in her every 
line and spelling defeat for rivals with 
every thrust of her sails. But there was 
a competitive spirit brewing in those new 
companions of QUEEN VAMARIE. 
They tasted of the same breezes, the 
same hands nursed their tiller and sails, 
coaxing the last bit of speed from gleam- 
ing hulls. Gradually they learned the 
jealously guarded secrets of their mistress 
and became in themselves proud, fleet 
rovers of the high seas. The three 
yawls, ALERT, INTREPID, and RES- 
OLUTE, provided us both with rec- 
reation and instruction in the handling 
of wooden ships and shaking sails, a far 
cry from steel ships and humming 
turbines. But a knowledge of the sea 
and its varied ways can best be gained by 
tasting the salty spume from a windy 
deck as you pit your wits against nature. 
So, the hardy salts of the Chesapeake 
tried their luck. 




SAILING THE YAWLS. They called it instruction. We called it fun. One of these good Seamo 
drills spent trying to put the lee rail under by pulling on various sheets while the instructor raved.

ships we had in stock, a veteran at ocean racing, living up to her name.

PLEBE YEAR convinced us that dragging was an essential 
part of a midshipman's life and so we partook — but often. 



THE OLD INJECTION— a pep rally! Songs, cheers, and a few "bring 
back the bacon" fight talks by members of the team added to the excitement. 




FALL, FOOTBALL 
DRAGG1H... 



DEBARKING AFTER ONE OF THOSE, CAN YOU DESCRIBE THEM, FOOTBALL TRIPS 
ENFORCED ABSENCE OF FEMS. WAS REASON FOR OVERLOADED MAILMEN 




FOR the sec- 
ond time in a year at the academy we 
rated dragging to hops. We returned 
from leave with all the new steps boned 
up and proceeded to pound the deck of 
Dahlgren Hall a couple of feet further 
into the ground. This dragging busi- 
ness was new to most of us, but Fate, 
Nature, and Woman's Wiles kept us 
from being entirely ignorant of the es- 
sentials. We became past masters at the 
art of dragging twice a month on an 
operating capital of four dollars. This 
Budget system after graduation was 
going to be fruit after Youngster Year. 
The football season was soon under- 
way and the Big Blue outfit looked 
mighty good. Practice started early 
and we returned just in time for the first 
game. Away games were more fun. 
Of course, there were cold box lunches 
and brisk little strolls at the end of 
snappy trainrides, but these were wel- 
come hazards to see the Blue and Gold 
in action. Some of us went to Phila- 
delphia, some to Princeton, and some 
didn't have a good time. But we all 
counted the hours until THE DAY at 
Philadelphia when one Army mule was 
due for one rough afternoon!!

ing into the tremendous stadium, hear- 



ing a hundred thousand people pay

it was our day. The rest of the story is 
history, of a grim, determined team and 
a Regiment backing them to a man until 
the officials mercifully put a stop to 
further Navy touchdowns. 



COLD BOX LUNCHES were a feature of every football trip includ- 
ing Army. Lunches of cheese and ham sandwiches, egg and apple. 



YOUNGSTER RATE was to keep Japanese Bell ringing until team 
returned. '43 celebrated 14-0 victory by keeping regular watch on bell.

CHRISTMAS 
AND CREPE 



"Christmas comes but once a year, 
And when it comes we'll all be here! !" 

We couldn't kick, though. We didn't 
have classes Christmas Day! Due to 
the emergency, the Secretary of the 
Navy decided that it would be better if 
we spent "The Holidays" here. So we 
discreetly hung crepe instead of tinsel and 
went to a Math p-work the day before 
Christmas and a Bull p-work the day 
after! However, the chow was good, 
we had liberty, and all hands rated 
congratulations under the circumstances.

GRADUATION 
AND RADIOS 



BACK in the middle of youngster 
cruise we received word that the Class 
of '41 was due to graduate in February. 
This measure was deemed necessary in 
view of the fact that the Navy, now 
growing at an alarming rate, was in 
dire need of new officers. How much 
this was to affect our own graduation 
we did not then know but certainly did 
care. 

Mid-year graduation, the first since 
the last War, differed little from the 
usual June Week ceremonies except that 
no Drill Week preceded it, something 
none of us regretted. Crabtown was 
just as crowded, the Farewell Ball just 
as colorful, the cheers just as loud, but 
this time the mutterings of war clouds 
became ominously louder. 

However, '41 left, that is all except the 
"23 Club" which took up residence in 
the Fourth Battalion, and '43 stepped 
into most of the former second class 
rates. The Executive Department re- 
laxed a bit their firm hold on us and we 
rated radios to soften that harsh early 
morning reveille. There were some of 
us, though, who couldn't resist those 
programs during hours that were taboo 
and they paid — for thirty days. We 
rated a table end in the mess hall and 
consequently more chow. New stripers 
tested new voices and new week-end 
privileges, pronounced both favorable. 




MAGIC OF RADIO entered '43's existence after graduation of '41. Those buying phono- 
graph combinations found records all to attractive; they ate up four-dollar monthly pay.

THE Dark Ages, or Gloom Period 
set in and seven hundred reserves 
dropped in to pay us a three months 
visit before joining the Fleet. The 
Fourth Battalion was vacated for them 
and we shared our hops, meals, and 
academic difficulties with the boys. 
They had all completed at least two 
years of college work, but the famous 
System was unnerving when faced in 
its entirety after those happy, carefree 
collitch days. However, they found 
their places soon and left us in May to 
try their hands at being ensigns. 

Winter became Spring and we came 
out of hibernation. Madmen began to 
get up before reveille to play tennis. 
Those awful p-rades began to plague us 
on lazy Wednesday afternoons. Spring 
fever seeped in through every window 
and classes turned from math to day- 
dreams of the summer ahead. A new 
innovation, Free Sunday, was introduced 
and thoroughly appreciated. We left 
our reefers at home and changed to white

THEI IF EVE 



TIME honored conclusio 
year at the Naval Academy is June 
Week, welcomed by midshipmen and pub- 
lic alike. Glittering hops, flashing dress 
parades, unique ceremonies of the acad- 
emy give spectators a thrill of national 
pride. Hours of liberty, parole from 
mental labor, and pleasant companions 
reawaken in midshipmen the joy of 



living. But beneath the surface the life 
of the regiment rolls smoothly on, 
scheduled by programs, timed by Tbells, 
and checked by executive forms. June 
Week, 1 94 1, preceded a summer ofl 
leave and academics instead of destroyer 
cruise and Country Club days, even 
lacked a graduation; but it followed 
traditional June Week patterns.

Navy lacrosse game. Two stripes

Forty-three made the change from 
youngster to second class in one day. 



ALWAYS HOPS 



PLEASANT diversion after any 
week of strenuous mental labor, the hop 
took on added lustre in June Week as 
aftermath to a week of trial by inquisi- 
tion. Special dances, as crowded June 
Ball, exclusive Youngster Hop, were 
featured attractions; but ordinary hops 
became interesting novelties when in- 



stead of usual blue full dress, prescribed 
uniform was yachting dress (blue service 
coats with white service trou) or full 
dress "cast" (blue jackets and white 
dress trou). 

Lieutenant Sima and his hardworking 
bandsmen played for band concerts in 
morning, informals in afternoon, then 
changed to dinner jackets to play again 
for evening formals. 

Deprived of a graduating class by 
February exit of the Class of 1941 the 
Farewell Ball still met old standards: 



fifteen hundred couples in space suf- 
ficient for fourteen hundred. As always 
wearing of white mess jackets distin- 
guished it from all other hops; any man 
who could tie a bow tie was the man of 
the hour in Bancroft Hall as all classes 
dug their boiled shirts out of storage, 
hunted madly for missing studs. In other 
years Farewell Ball honored a graduat- 
ing class, 1 94 1 found all classes bidding 
the academy farewell as they shoved off 
on cruise or leave; June Week hops left 
them no regrets. 




JUNE BALL, CROWDED AS USUAL, FORCED COUPLES TO SPILL FROM DAHLGREN HALL INTO MOONLIT THOMPSON STADIUM

FIRST ONE-CLASS FUNCTION WAS 
CLIMAX OF JDIS WEEK FOR '43 



THE five-man hop committee, 
headed by Arnest, did a remarkable 
piece of interior decorating, transformed 
bare MacDonough Hall into a colorful 
nautical hop setting for this, another 
milestone on road to a career. Aided 
by Juice Gang, Department of Buildings 
and Grounds, almost every flagbag in 
the yard they completed the nautical 
motif fifteen minutes before hop time 
after being forced to abandon carefully 
laid plans for a Hawaiian background. 
For those who took time to show off 
knowledge, central flag hoists spelled 
out "Youngster Hop Class of '43." 
Flemished rope designs, huge anchors, 
binnacles, ships' wheels and bell added 
the finishing touches to what was, 
strangely enough, the academy's first 
nautical hop. Another first was sub- 
stitution of favors for program entertain- 
ment provided at past Youngster Hops. 
Some classes produced amusing skits, 
minstrel shows, or aquacades; Forty- 
three demanded permanency, gave class- 
crested lockets to partners of evening. 
Rain liquidated dozens of Japanese 
lanterns, left its mark on a thousand 
white shoes, forced committee to move 
the lounge from its sidewalk cafe setting 
to security of MacDonough Hall's first 
floor; but failed to dampen spirits within. 
Naval Academy hops are more dignified 
than most college formals; strongest 
ingredient of punch served is orange 
juice. The usual program was varied 
by congas, dreamy waltzes; the old 
ship's bell clanged out "Eight Bells" too 
soon for most couples. Lieutenant Sima 
laid down his baton, the crowd sifted 
away, and Forty-three's Youngster Hop 
was only a memory. 



NAUTICAL DESIGNS in rope were part of clever decorating job 
which included signal flags, huge anchors in picture at top of page. 



SHIP'S WHEEL and binnacle, used for midshipman instruction, deco- 
rated first nautical hop. Program dances were announced by ship's bell.

LORD AND MASTER of all lie surveys. Through 
entrance to Forty-three's first one-class function 
strolled 500 couples to the best hop of June Week. 



WHITE SERVICE made Youngster Hop June 
Week's most comfortable formal affair. Leather 
bound dance program hangs from his shoulder. 





CONGAING WAS EASIER with midshipmen wearing white service instead of 
full dress; but starch and Academy standards of dignity curtailed jitterbugging. 




RECEIVING ENTERING couples at base of giant anchor were Mrs. Wylie, wife 
of the Assistant to the Executive Officer, and Jack Barrett, of the Hop Committee. 

THEY ALSO SERVE who only stand and wait; while most of class enjoyed gala 
evening some had the guard. Watches were drawn by lot; Herb drew wrong slip.

VARIETY WAS SPICE OF JUNE WEEK 



SAILS DOWN, DIESEL RUNNING, KETCH CREW ENJOYED SUNNY DAY IN JUNE 




BIG events put Annapolis June 
Weeks in the news: graduations, pa- 
rades, special hops, famous visitors; 
behind this spectacular front the Regi- 
ment brought another academic year to 
close in its own way, more recreation and 
relaxation than is possible in ordinary 
week of closely regulated lives. 

In 1 94 1 the United States was still at 
peace, and hundreds of visitors thronged 
Naval Academy yard; most midshipmen 
entertained friends or relatives, a ma- 
jority entertained heart-throbs. Reg- 
ulations prohibit public displays of 
affection, as holding hands with girl; 
most couples choose recreations away 
from watchful eyes of Executive Depart- 
ment. Most popular was sailing; acad- 
emy has fleet of some 70 small boats. 
Priority is by class, few members of '43 
obtained boats. Members of Naval 
Academy Boat Club arranged excursions 
on battalion ketches; aided by auxiliary 
engines they could sail down bay, have 
picnic lunch, go swimming, enjoy pro- 
verbial sailor's holiday. Some preferred 
to paddle own canoes, rented same, and 
explored branches of Severn River. 

Picnics, hiking were popular with 
those who couldn't get fill of marching 
at parades; residential areas have not 
completely eliminated timber and open

field; inlets and creeks make going 
interesting. 

Music and movies played large role in 
entertainment program for June Week. 
To display talented midshipmen to 
admiring friends and relatives Com- 
bined Musical Clubs staged mock radio 
program in Smoke Park, offered varied 
program of soloists, orchestra music, 
choruses by Glee Club, red-hot jive by 



N.A.-io. Movies came on nights when 
hops weren't scheduled for upper classes, 
provided midshipmen with same liberty 
privileges. 

Sport events of week included season 
finales in baseball, tennis, lacrosse, golf, 
rifle, and sailing. Vice-President Wal- 
lace spoke to record crowd at Spanish 
Club meeting, started speech in perfect 
Castillian to amazement of midshipmen, 



admitted laughingly after breakdown 
that he was still a student, finished 
entertaining chat in English. Interested 
audience heard Bud Zumwalt take prizes 
as best speaker in Quarterdeck Society's 
contest for second straight year. 

Most popular pastime for those who, 
by choice or chance, found themselves 
without visitors was bunk drill, designed 
to conserve energy for leave. 



FOR BETTER FOOD rent a house, let mammy cook and wash dishes 
was advice of many. Some supplied hoxes of cereal from the mess hall. 



SPORTS drew crowds, particularly Army contests in baseball, track 
and lacrosse. Here is what those who don't drag do for recreation.

THE PROVERBIAL STORM— ABANDONMENT OF RIGID STANDARDS OF ORDER DURING JUNE WEEK LET CHAOS REIGN 



nniii time 



HARDEST part of June Week was 
waiting, particularly for those who had 
no drag or family present. Deprived 
of Christmas leave by academic speedup, 
all hands awaited longest leave in years, 
eagerne^- tinged with anxiety. Until 



June 2 odds were that all or part of leave 
would be cancelled. Habitually pes- 
simistic, midshipmen nevertheless con- 
tinued to sort and unsort, pack and un- 
pack belongings in cruise boxes, suit- 
cases, and stowages until last minute, 



when everything that wouldn't fit bulg- 
ing Gladstones was crammed into warped 
cruise boxes, properly forgotten for forty 
days. By car, by train, by bus, by plane, 
'43 spread fanlike over country, wrote 
finis to June week, 1941. 



WHAT TO KEEP was a problem. Typical table in picture at top 
holds portable radio, chow, victrola records, clothing, magazines. 



THEY TOIL NOT, neither do they spin. A good tan and hours of sleep 
come in handy on leave when midshipmen find 24 hours too short a day.

MiaUiUfune+i Pn&pxzAe, fyosi tf-inAt Sushsh&i GauAAe, 



AT 10:00 A.M. on July 1 1. 1941 the 
first class, part of the third class and we, 
the second class, returned to Bancroft 
Hall after one ofthoM- shon intermissions 
that make life worth while. But it was 
a lon£ intermission, \ 1 days, longer than 
any leave we had been given before. 
Even more, the system softened to the 
point of giving us ninety dollars for our 
transportation and entertainment, pins 
an allowance of a hundred dollars for 
civilian clothing. A scout from Esquire 
would have benefited from watching 
that exodus of midshipmen. 

But if all time went as fast as leave 
does, life would be a very short affair. 
When our forty-one days were over we 
were well rested but still a little reluctant 
to give up our late hours, sporty clothes, 
cars, and carefree life. So Friday saw 
us with downcast countenances. But 



there were bright spots — a new 
rangement of classes that would all 
forty-five minutes of leisure after lun 
and afternoons free after 3:30 were 
definite advantage. Being second seni 
class Ave would have new rates an 
privileges. The fact that in one sho 
year we would join the fleet was un- 
doubtedly the most important feature. 
For the fourth time we moved into 
new rooms. We unpacked cruise boxes, 
drew our academic tools, and recovered 
our uniforms. On the following Mon- 
day vve found white works a convenient 
and confortable uniform for classes. 
White service for hops and liberties were 
cool and glamorous. They have long 
been the favored garb, but never before 
had we had much chance to appear 
in them. 









SECOND class year brought us some- 
thing new in academics. It marked the 
beginning of our real professional sub- 
jects. Classes in Seamanship, Naviga- 
tion, and Ordnance and Gunnery meant 
we were really on the way toward joining 
the fleet. In Seamanship we would 
soon be memorizing the Rules of the 
Road that had been brought to our 
attentions at the table plebe year. 
Blinker drills would replace the old 
nemesis, mental arithmetic. Besides 
learning to compensate a compass, 
Navigation was to bring us ten new 
kinds of time, to say nothing of a weekly 
P-Work that would rival plebe steam 
for ruining eyes. In Ordnance and 
Gunnery we were to learn how the guns 
we had fired on our youngster cruise, 
had been designed and built. We were 
still blissfully ignorant of the formula for 
black powder. 

The summer drills were new and 
interesting. In Seamanship we had 
bumper drills, practice in making land- 
ings on the Severn's shores. For the 
past four years, second class year has 
meant yawl drills. For some of the 
boat clubbers it was nothing new, but 
for the rest of us it was our first trip in 
a good size racing sail boat. The U.S.S. 
Noa took us out a company at a time to 
acquaint us with destroyers as part of 
the Marine Engineering course. Over 
at the rifle range we had the opportunity 
to fire new Garands, Browning sub- 
machine guns, automatic rifles and 
machine guns.

timtM 



THE EXECUTIVE PLATOON took the fourth class on the field and taught them to march. This practice served as training for both classes. 
To the plebes it was instruction in an art they would follow for four years. To us it was experience in giving commands and organizing drills. 



<7„ 



HE Summer 
of 1 94 1 passed much more quickly than 
we thought it would. The drills during 
tin*- period were far more interesting 
than those of previous years. At the 
rifle range we were shown the theory 
that went with the trench mortar, how 
.1 -hell could be dropped on a blanket at 
five hundred yards. We were shown 
the .30 and .50 calibre machine guns 
and allowed to fire the .30's on several 
occasions. The most popular drill at 
the range was probably the one on 
automatic arms. We fired the Thomp- 
son Tommy gunj Sub Machine Gun 
that gangsters made famous, the Garand 
M-i that has been the subject of so 
much discussion, and the Browning 
Automatic Rifle. 

The yawls gave experience in larger 
boats 10 those who had not already sailed 
them. On balmy afternoons we would 
run up a set of sails and then vary the 
head-sails to see the effect. 

Although we were not senior class, as 

the < 'I torn, the new incoming class 

turned over to u-. An executive 

platoon ••■•.! formed from men in every 

( ompan) . 'I hi the group that 

actually took charge ol the plebes. 

They were given Huii< and stood 

watches, then when the plebes 9 three 

of grace were up, the executive 

platoon conducted them to classes, held 

room inspections, and taughl them how 

to man h. 




A COMPASS is not always correct. We 
learned to compensate one with models. 



SPARE TIME was spent in the usual way — 
four midshipmen, a deck of cards, and bridge. 




DEVIASCOPE DRILLS GAVE US ACTUAL PRACTICE CORRECTING A COMPASS 



154 





A NEW PRIVILEGE that was extended to all hands was that of riding in cars with officers 
and instructors. To the Army and Navy juniors it made week-end drives with the family possible. 



THE FALL TERM marked the end of white 
service and the return to the heavy blue suits. 



SECOND class year brought many 
innovations, rates, privileges, and duties. 
Wednesday afternoons we spent much 
as we had our non-hop week-ends. 
There were always records to buy or 
movies to see. One of the more popular 
pastimes became the weekly visit to our 
other home out in town. After two 
years of association and one of dragging, 
we found that the people of Annapolis 
were very gracious hosts. 

One of the new privileges that fell not 



only to us, but to all the upper-classes 
was that of riding in cars with officers 
and instructors. Since many of us were 
Army or Navy juniors, it was very con- 
venient. There was but one drawback, 
the five mile radius limit was kept in 
effect. This was but one of the regula- 
tions that underwent a process of loosen- 
ing during 1941. It became consistent 
with the regulations to mildly indulge in 
alcoholic beverages while outside the 
five mile radius of the academy. But 



here there was another drawback. We 
were only outside this limit on football 
trips and regular leaves. 

Another popular innovation was the 
"free Sunday." Every Sunday one bat- 
talion was allowed to miss Chapel to 
engage in athletics or simply to exercise 
on Farragut Field. This particular 
privilege will always be credited to Mrs. 
Russell Willson, the wife of our superin- 
tendent, despite the official channels it 
came through. 




A HOME AWAY FROM HOME was found in many private residences. 
On any free afternoon we could be found lazily playing bridge or the radio. 



WE TOOK OUR PLACES, prematurely given to us in February, at the 
foot of the table. But now, arms on the table showed two diagonal stripes.

\V A K CAME TO THE NATION 
Wll Til TIIK ACADEMY 



ON Sun- 
daw December 7. 1941. Japan declared war on the United 
States. That nisrht the academy went wild with excitement. 
Immediately armed security watches were posted to patrol 
Bancroft's basements and terrace decks were designated. 
Mates began keeping a running information column on their 
black boards. Monday found the Naval Academy without a 
single visitor. Only escorted guests, ciyilian employees bear- 
ing identification cards, midshipmen, and officers were allowed 
within the gates. Shortly afterwards, blackout shades were 
installed in all offices, and opaque shades were put in the 
windows of the lower three decks. An air raid bulletin was 
published that designated fire watchers, and patrols. It 
assigned the first and second decks as air raid shelters. De- 
-ci iptions of all types of incendiary bombs with instructions as 
to extinguishing them were posted and read to the Regiment. 






SECURITY WATCHES with automatics made us feel mighty impor- 
tant. Hundreds of imaginary saboteurs fell victims to our blazing guns. 



A STATE OF WAR meant many restrictions to those in federal employ, 
Regulations required every car that entered the yard to be inspected. 




VISITORS to the academy were barred except those actually with 
officers or midshipmen. Civilian employees were required to wear badges. 



i 5 6 



NEW BUILDINGS APPEARED 
BANCROFTS FACE LIFTED 



THE two new additions to the 
Naval Academy were Ward Hall and 
the annexes to Bancroft Hall. Ward 
Hall was built because Dahlgren Hall 
was inadequate in so far as classrooms 
were concerned, also to provide a lecture 
room and a display room. Now all 
classes are held in the new building while 
the drills are still held in the armory. 
But the real pride of everyone who had 
ever lived in them were the annexes. 
Every room had its own shower and 
closet. The lights turned on from a hall 
switch. To connect on to the aerial on 
the roof, one had to but plug into a floor 
connection. There were lights and shoe 
racks in the closet. Lights at both 
mirrors enabled two people to shave 
electrically, simultaneously. Elevators 
just like ones in hotels were a joy to 
behold, but only those who ignored the 
regulations were privileged to use them. 
To be caught meant the loss of a week- 
end. 




WARD HALL was proof of the expansion of the Ordnance Department. Dahlgren had 
too few classrooms for four periods of ordnance a week. The new building provided these.

Qaoefa OF THE 
RUG DAME 




PROBABLY the first dinner at 
which all the guests were present on 
time, was the one which preceded our 
Ring Dance. There in the mess hall 
was one of the finer buffet dinners ever 
served. We had arranged place cards 
and decorations on the tables ourselves 
earlier that day. About nine o'clock 
our dinner music ended and the couples 
walked through the first battalion across 
the colonnades into MacDonough Hall. 
The entire building was decorated along 
a Christmas theme; beautifully orna- 
mented trees were everywhere. All 
evening couples lined the upper floor, 
waiting their turn in the ring. Ac- 
cording to tradition our rings were 
bathed in water twenty four hours fresh 
from both oceans and the Caribbean. 
And we were all very envious of those 
who gave miniatures to chosen ones 
there in the ring. 






WE DID OUR BEST TO IMPRESS OUR OAO'S AT THIS, THE MOST IMPORTANT HOP

OUR class was not allowed a name 
band for the Ring Dance, but no one 
would admit that more danceable music 
could be had at any price. The most 
popular number of the evening was a 
soft sweet medley played with dimmed 
lights. 



AMONG the fortunate were Mary Black, 
Robbins, Patricia Compton, and Walker.

'42 GAVE ITS LAST CHEER. Secretary Frank Knox, cautioned them about what lay ahead 
and sent them to the fleet to practice results of three and a half years' study and training. 

ENTIRE REGIMENT STOOD AT PARADE REST WHILE AWARDS WERE MADE 



SOMETHING NEW HAS BEEN ADDED. 
A ring and a little silk but what a difference. 

A PERFECT DAY 

IN the space of 24 hours about 
everything favorable that can happen 
to a midshipman happened to us. In 
the morning, '42 graduated and we 
became first class. That night we got 
our rings at the Ring Dance. The next 
morning we left on a 14 day leave. The 
only thing left to happen was for the 
U.S.N. A. to become coed. 



WE PACKED our bags and took a vaca- 
tion. This leave was to be the last one for us. 





162 





CONFIDENTIAL LOCKERS proved to be a stowage place for 
more than publications. Toasters and Java pots also found safety. 



FIRST CLASS RATES, and privilege of hiring corridor-boys 
to make up rooms, came to us. Thus ended years of housekeeping. 



SPOILS FELL TO THE FIRST CLASS 



FIRST class year finally arrived. 
Now after breakfast when we came back 
to our rooms, the bunks were made and 
the place cleaned. It was also nice 
having plebe valets to hold clothes in 
the mad dash for formation. Marks 
dropped, not because the work was 
harder, but because it's difficult to 



study with a radio on. Smoking in the 
corridor was one rate that was always 
carried farther than regulations pro- 
vided, i/c watches were more interest- 
ing than any preceding, but it was 
easy to make a mistake. 

Extra duty had ruined its last after- 
noon. Week-end confinements and loss- 



es of liberty and privileges replaced the 
Extra Duty squad. 

Week-end liberties are one of the finer 
institutions at the academy. We didn't 
get our first until Washington's Birthday. 
We were also given Alemorial Day 
week-end and one other to be taken 
when desired. 



FIRST FORMATION could hardly have been called a success. 
Some of us wore new stripes, other less fortunate wore old markings.

SEVEN HUNDRED reserves came to Naval Academy in February to 
be trained for commissions. Again they occupied fourth battalion wing.

METAMORPHOSIS 

MANY pleasant afternoons were 
spent with the merchants along Robbers 
Row looking over materials for blue 
service. Other necessities for the future 
were rainclothes, white service, khakis, 
accessories. We shopped 
around trying to get the best prices, 
thinking we were beating the tailors, but 
as has happened for years, the tailors got 
the best of it. Some of our services and 
overcoat could be converted. That 
along with the savings on full dress, not 
required during war, saved us a con- 
siderable amount. These were only a 
part of the preparations we made, an- 
ticipating the day when our mothers 
would attach one ensign shoulder mark, 
our O.A.O.'s the other.

FEast Boothbay, Maine 
rank came to the Naval Academy through the Naval Reserve 
after a prep course at Farragut, and since most of his life has been spent on the 
coast of Maine, he had a rather substantial jump on most of us. Call him Frank, 
"Jess," or just "Hot," and his tow head will always turn your way. His principal 
interest is photography and he will cheerfully ruin any film you care to have him 
develop. When not embroiled in hypo, he can be found playing football, basket- 
ball or getting in some extra-curricular rifle practice. His high class standing 
indicates that he will be a definite asset to the service. We will all be glad to see 
him in the fleet.

'ut of the Pennsylvania steel mills, "Rod" came to the Academy 
via Penn State. Easygoing, quiet, well-mannered, agreeable, and handsome — 
these are but a few of his qualities. Although not a member of any athletic team, 
he was a constant surprise when playing any game. His main sports were tennis 
and golf, where he could hold his own with the best. His talents had only to be 
uncovered to be appreciated. Academics never seemed to hamper his thoughts 
nearly as much as the five mile radius and the nearness of Washington. "Rod" 
has the qualities necessary for success in the service and he'll use them with the 
best of ability.

1 lebe year, Steve took things easy and consequently was a regular 
member of the extra-duty squad. However, the next two years were different. 
He realized that a continuous date with Miss Springfield was very monotonous. 
Being an ambitious lad, Steve tried his hand at lacrosse, baseball, starring in 
academics, and playing a fiddle; the latter two being most successful. Most of the 
time his greatest worry was his love life. As he would say in a choking, breathless 
voice, "I am in love!" Being a Connecticut Yankee, he was always ready and able 
to use clear thought and understanding in any argument for the North.

►ass fishing on the St. Lawrence in the spring and summer was 
once "Beezy's" biggest pastime, but he soon found new diversions in the life at 
the Academy, and proved himself equally adept with a lacrosse stick as with a 
fishing rod. Three years of regular competition will vouch for that. What little 
spare time he had out of lacrosse season was generally taken up with playing 
tennis and swimming, all in addition to originating and carrying out practical 
jokes on all his classmates. At the academy he made a great roommate and in the 
fleet, we know, he will make a great shipmate.

for a man who professed to believe that sleeping and eating were 
the only worthwhile things in life, Andy was strangely active. After two years of 
fencing, he took over the task of managing the "pinpushers." He has sailed on 
the company teams; he has shot on both company and varsity pistol and rifle 
teams. Those rare spare moments were occupied by workouts in the gym, writing 
letters to New York and Newport, and guarding that precious meerschaum. In 
spite of all this, Andy has consistently stood high, not only in the class standing, 
but, with his quiet unassuming ways, in the esteem of his classmates.

I ew York was Frank's background and to him it remains the one 
city. Hemmed in by skyscrapers, his contacts with the great outdoors have been 
limited to an occasional stroll in Central Park. Frank talks rapidly, without the 
East-Side twang, and writes an amazingly illegible hand with equal speed. His 
eternal good-humor and ever-present smile have made him at all times a welcome 
companion and a good shipmate. Not exactly a star man, his native wit and 
commonsense enabled him to hold his own in the fastest of company.

dinghies and sailing the other academy craft. A profound lover of the water and 
yachting, he could be found almost any afternoon participating in an informal 
race on the Severn, or deeply involved in a discussion on boats and racing. 
Anyone in the Storm Trysail Race will remember his long peaked cap and his 
tall stories about the ocean voyage. And, with that prize spyglass he will go far 
in his pursuit of racing.

JJeing a sailor from 'way back, it was only natural that Bill turned 
all his spare time and energy in this direction. He started out plebe year in the 
company sailing crew, branching out a little at the end of the year to include 
those little salt water peanut shells, the international dinghies. Youngster year 
found him still with his dinghies, but also included service on the yawls, the 
Vamarie and the Spindrift. During his Second class year Bill found ordinary sailing 
lacking in excitement so he got his command qualifications and proceeded to go 
out for bay racing, becoming a pipe smoking, blue water sailor.

done about becoming a naval officer. The job he viewed looked hard, but he soon 
found it easy enough to spend time and energy on outside activities. He is popular 
with everyone with whom he is in contact on account of his quiet seriousness 
and never failing, subtle humor. An ardent admirer of the Irish, which is easily 
recognizable in him, he is entirely worthy and possesses considerable character; 
and he will make good in the fleet as he has done here. Ed has found time for the

Lt would be a great surprise if a fellow like Berky did not select the 
Navy as his chosen profession. Since he is of pure Swedish and Norwegian descent, 
the love of the sea is in his blood, inherited from his ancestors. He is a rabid base- 
ball and football fan, likes sailing, and, of all things, weight-lifting. In the fall 
he plays soccer and when spring comes around you can always find him on Worden 
Field participating in an intra-mural softball game. We are certain that his 
qualities of tactfulness, generosity, and his good nature will help him far along 
the long road to his goal, four stripes and a flag.

Ucar old Rutgers on the Raritan lost a real "Rah, Rah" man 
when Bob offered his services to Uncle Sam. His versatility gave him ample 
ability to fill the class treasurer and first company representative positions while 
maintaining a creditable academic standing. Bob was a born entertainer. His 
imitations of people with appropriate dialects, backed by a keen sense of humor, 
helped greatly to keep his pals' spirits high. His activities included soccer, track, 
batt sports, and the Boat Club. His ability and congeniality will undoubtedly 
earn for him a place in the fleet as high as he has gained at the academy.

Owing it Jackson — Here's "Uncle Bee." He's a New Jersey "Alliga- 
tor" who has put Frank Bailey's Mcadowbrook to shame. Swing sessions under 
his instruction were just an everyday pastime. As a result, the maestro and his 
pupils have worn more than a few inches off the deck of good old Dahlgren Hall. 
To keep in condition for a rendezvous with the sword at hops, "Uncle Bee" 
performed on the wrestling mat, and his jive movements made him a stellar 
participant in this manly art. On the surface Gene might appear to be quite a 
"College Joe," but despite his love of jive and checkered coats, he will make a 
4.0 Naval officer.

J- he best things come in small packages." Such was Renovo, 
Pennsylvania's gift to the Navy; for Bob, a fourth platooner, was a credit to his 
state. Never excelling in anything but friendliness and character, "Punchy" was 
good at everything he undertook, having more than average intelligence, a pleasant 
disposition, a sincere nature, and an uncanny will power. Neither a brilliant student 
nor an extra-curricular man, he was never idle, for he got just what he came 
after — that big broad stripe and commission. Unlike his classmates, heart affairs 
numbered only one. His many friends knew him as "just plain swell."

IN ew Castle's loss was the Navy's gain, but Bill never let those home 
ties get too thin. There were just two kinds of girls to Bill — "Sis," and all the rest. 
Somehow when we think of Bill we just naturally think of Sis — just like Mike 
and Ike. Although he came to the Academy right out of high school, academics 
were always easy for Bill and we all envied the smooth way he ripped through 
those math assignments. Always congenial, considerate, and helpful, Bill was the 
best of roommates, and we can see nothing ahead for him but a life of smooth 
sailing and steady progress toward his goal.

W hitey" was White Plains' gift to the Navy. When J. Furman 
first arrived, he was a blond package of energy, at first meek and mild, but which 
has since developed into a bomb-shell. His afternoons were spent in various fields 
of endeavor, the foremost of these being the Sub squad. It seems that the "Rabbit" 
was never cut out to be a swimmer and spent the greater part of his three years 
in a constant controversy with Henry Ortland and his staff. When he wasn't 
swimming, "Whitey" spent most of his time studying. He just didn't give the Ac- 
ademic departments a chance.

o the amazement of his parents, "T" joined the navy and came to 
the Academy the hard way. With his two years as a signalman in the fleet, he 
saw it "from the other side of the fence" and gained a perspective which should 
prove a valuable asset in future years. "T" had traveled rather widely, before 
he started looking through portholes and has spent about a year in China. All 
the time he managed to salvage from the Academic department, he spent playing 
golf or squash and occasionally sat still long enough to read over "Time" or 
"Naval Institute Proceedings." Though he was more on the sober side, we'll 
always remember him for his ready smile and cordial greeting. Here's luck "T"

When not running or wrestling, one could always find "Buck" on his bunk. He 
would argue with anyone and has never been known to give in — not even to the 
Exei . Department. With an O.A.O. back in West Chester, "Buck" never was the

tonic than he lost battling in the boxing ring or on the gridiron for the Goat- 
herders, but drafted as plebe track manager, Ace ascended the ladder and 
became varsity manager. Study? "I'll star next year; let's go sailing." A sense of

always did. As he got along very well with all girls, he very nearly became a 
snake. When not busy with sports or dragging, his time was occupied by the Boat

notebook. The radiator squad was his first love, with track and handball a close 
second; but during his last year, the yachting squadron lured him from his bunk 
and his stories of Gloucester for a little of the real thing. His interest in the fair

F orsaking a career in civil engineering, Bill entered the academy 
with a camera, a guitar, and a desire for a Naval career. Since then, the NA-io, 
Lucky Bag photographic staff, battalion swimming team, and women have oc- 
cupied his attentions. A likable sense of humor, a flair for anything photogenic, 
and a peculiar ability to ride herd on the Executive department, won him many 
friends. In anything from dragging the girl friends' friend to developing a roll of 
film, "Sabu" could always be counted on as a real classmate. Here's hoping he 
soon achieves his goal, Pensacola, and the wings that follow.

both of them "in the groove." When "Poisson" wasn't on the track or in the gym, 
he could usually be found practicing for the N.A.-io or wrapping it up for fun. 
Famed for his "snaking," Poisson was said never to have missed a hop or passed 
up an opportunity to drag, but most of the gals lost out when he sailed the yawls 
or ketches. His record collection, correspondence, and the Lucky Bag took up the 
rest of his time. Strictly on the non-reg side, he made many friends of whom he 
may well be proud. We were glad to have had him along.

battalion crew man and a track star of no mean ability. Sunday nights he spent

active interest in tumbling, crew, and sailing. Nor was his prowess confined to the 
physical, for academics were a small worry. Socially Gal was more than satis- 
factory, for he enjoyed dancing, dragging, and lively discussions. With such

him back North. At the academy he has foregone varsity athletics for battalion 
sports, taking part in Softball, basketball, and tennis. His diversions were many 
but his prepossessions boiled down to "pro" baseball, chocolate marshmallow nut 
sundaes, bull sessions and a yearly bet that the "A's" would finish, in the first 
division. He may lose his bet on the "A's," but you can safely give odds that 
Mart's ability to make friends will always keep him well up in the first division.

with a minimum amount of effort. He usually spent his afternoons on the tennis 
courts or in the swimming pool practicing for battalion meets. Although he was 
not a regular attendant at the meetings of the "radiator squad," he was a member 
in good standing and he played a very good game of bridge. This, however, was 
not his favorite form of amusement, for, like the rest of us, he succumbed, and

seen playing upon the football field, behind a billiard cue, or in a squash court. 
Seldom idle, Bill's spare time was consumed principally in athletics, reading, or

received his able and willing support during the entire course. In the few spare 
minutes remaining, Perry managed to read his share of books, smoke a weird 
collection of pipes, and keep a lively conversation going. Never over ambitious 
and never disturbed, he calmly took things as they came. He was just a "regular fel-

Battalion cross country, soft ball, and basketball were his favorite sports. A very 
sociable fellow, he did some fine work for the Reception Committee. Frank 
undoubtedly always had a clear conscience; this is amply supported by the fact 
that he had to be kicked into consciousness at reveille. Though devoted to cigarettes

Mike could usually be found in the gym absorbing practical instruction in the

sailing in most of the small boat races. On Saturday evenings, it was Dahlgren

majority of the men who enter the Naval Academy are about as 
ignorant of the things of the sea as the average mid-Western farmer. We had, 
however, one member of our class who fairly dripped with brine the day he 
rolled into Annapolis "Plebe Summer." In the three short years that passed he 
left his mark on every phase of sailing that existed at the academy. "Fish," as he 
was quickly dubbed, was reared on Long Island only a stone's throw from the 
roaring Atlantic. He was sailing toy boats before he cut his first tooth and followed 
the early call of the sea to the Naval Academy. A past like that can forecast nothing 
but a brilliant future for his chosen career in the Navy.

not only proved to be helpful to Al but as well to many of we duller lights of the 
Seamo Department. Sandwiched in between academics and bunk drills, Al was 
able to collect and enjoy a fine library, perfect his chess stratagems, and develop 
a wicked tennis arm. His clearheadedness, common sense, and capacity for hard 
work will spread oil on any troubled waters he may encounter.

port. He is still devoted to his O.A.O. back home in New Jersey; a record few of 
us can equal. A voracious reader of all manner of literature from Tolstoi to 
"Astounding Stories," Hubie never found time to become an enthusiastic athlete. 
He is prepared to do a good job when he returns to the fleet as an officer.

On the contrary, athletics and extra-curricular activities were a very predominant 
part of his life at the academy. Rowing, first with the plebe crew and then in the 
battalion shells, and battalion football always kept him busy. Nor could we forget

down a starting pitching assignment. This year saw him out for football and base-

sturdy support. Among Jim's files were found recordings, mostly classical but some 
popular; liquor labels; newspaper headings; maps; and many a phone number,

Even his pet hobby, color photography, suffered when "Eric the Red" took up

I atrick" from little old New York knew his rates in the wardroom 
when he got here. He joined the chess team to make the trips. A bachelor, though 
not by choice, his weekly dragging of youngster year finally settled down to a 
routine three out of four. While basking in the sun with a well-caked pipe, he 
made more cord belts than any two bo'sun's mates. Battalion wrestling covers 
his only serious attempt at athletics. He thought of going into the Marine Corps 
till he heard about the marching. Abe, although he never attempted to break 
any academic records here at the academy, held his own against the best of them.

JAMES EDWARD LEWELLYN 

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 
I immy arrived from the Smoky City with his specs, skull cap, pipe, 
and an ambition to make good. He started by playing two sports, standing high 
in his class, and using his talent for cartooning to keep his classmates amused and 
guessing. A shoulder injury halted his football career, but he continued with his 
boxing. Whenever a group was found, Jimmy was usually in the midst of it. His 
antics, jokes, and many dialects were always good for a laugh from his fellows. 
With his qualities of good-fellowship, tact, and understanding, Jim will be a 
pleasant and valued shipmate.

JJeing of an open mind, Jack entered the Naval Academy from 
New Jersey fortified with a basic training obtained in the fleet. A profound soul 
with a flexible personality made him good company in any group. Possessor of a 
happy-go-lucky spirit, Jack was over willing to aid the harrassed classmate, es- 
pecially in romantic affairs, for on this subject he was our number one authority. 
His "exercises," centering on swimming and volley ball, periodically left him a 
defeated, worn out individual. His greatest pride is his curly hair; his greatest 
desire is to command a sub; his predominant trait is his pleasing personality. 

JOSEPH ARTHUR LOVINGTON 

-j-, Newark, New Jersey 

I 1 rom New Jersey, Joe came and proved to us that all Yankees 
don't rate the prefix commonly assigned them. As a student there were few better 
but standing ten didn't keep him from other activities. Though no varsity athlete, 
he was a staunch member of battalion teams. His chief interest and skill however, 
was in yawl sailing for you could see him cross the line on the winning yawl in 
any Sunday race. Joe's sunny disposition, happy smile, and readiness to join in on 
any party made him an ever pleasant companion. Being definitely not adverse 
to feminine companionship, he would always rouse the envy of his classmates 
with his drags.

Lac was strictly one of those fellows who couldn't see the words 
on the blackboard, and by the end of youngster year, couldn't see the blackboard. 
Although not a cut-throat, he came out on the right side of the academic ledger. 
Definitely not a wonderman, Mac nevertheless won awards in football, boxing, 
and track, which may account for the attraction he has for women. His big com- 
plaint was that women confused him, and didn't write often enough. Always 
ready for a prank, or an excuse to knock off studying, Mac's sunny smile and 
earnestness will stand him good in whatever career fate chooses for him. 

WALTER DAUGHERTY McCORD, JR.

LJo we have juice tomorrow?" These words meant only one thing, 
Mac was just winding up another letter or book. After three years, Mac was still 
writing four or five a week to the same town in New Jersey. Although the black 
sheep of an all Army family, Bud entered into the spirit of the Navy and did a 
lot of work for the class. As for sports, he followed them all, but for actual participa- 
tion, other activities occupied most of his attention. As a member of the Lucky 
Bag staff, Bud's abilities were most gratefully recognized and appreciated. Mac's 
drive and enthusiasm will carry him far in the service.

W hen Mac came to Annapolis, he was a pessimist. When he left, 
he was an optimist which is typical of the changes Navy "U" made in the big boy. 
For three years he paddled his way through that old Navy fraternity Sigma Sigma 
(sub squad). This coupled with an interest in photography, varied athletics, and 
the best books of the day gobbled up his spare time. But in taking his time, they 
gave him in return a sense of determination, a concept of fair play, and a well 
balanced outlook on life — qualities which are destined to come to the fore in the 
trials and stresses which he has yet to face.

I oungster year was fruit!" Mac should know, because that was 
the year he jumped five hundred numbers. But don't get the idea that he was a 
cut-throat; his activities were many and varied. During plebe and youngster 
years he was active in battalion lacrosse, gym, and swimming. Mac also was 
an ardent sailing enthusiast; anything pertaining to boats got his instant attention. 
Then, too, he was always ready for a hand of bridge, an interesting conversation, 
or a bunk drill with a good book. Holyoke lost a fine man in Mac, for his cheer- 
fulness and optimism was a cheery encouragement through three years.

find him in a hand of bridge. "Navy Jack," "Tiny," and "Mac" were only a 
few of the names by which he was known to almost every member of the regiment. 
The easy nature that hid behind his great size won friends readily, and every

rlenn was one of our sincerest Navy blue and gold men. No, he 
didn't become a star athlete, but he had potentialities. He was one of our unsung 
heroes who made himself a martyr to gymnasium work, swimming, and physical 
development. The Movie Gang, German Club, Boat Club, and two years on the 
Reception Committee rounded out his contributions to our organizations. He 
might have starred if only that certain one had given him the inspiration. He was 
considered by all who knew him as dependable, thorough, and ambitious. The 
Navy and her sons should hear a lot from Glenn.

L rom New York to the Naval Academy was quite a jump as far as 
entertainment went, but Dave managed to retain most of his old hobbies and even 
add a few new ones. Among those new hobbies were photography and beating 
the system. In photography he was successful enough to become photographic 
editor of the Trident, first class year. His great success in beating the system was 
clearly evidenced by the Black "N" emblazoned on his bathrobe. Nevertheless, 
his ardour in pursuit of this fascinating occupation was never diminished. Although 
Dave didn't star in academics, he was never bothered by this necessary evil. 

LEWIS WILLIAM METZGER

i exas born and Pennsylvania bred, Bill entered the academy after 
a year's arduous labor in prep school. His work had just begun. "Plebe year was 
fruit," he would mumble with a wry smile, remembering the hours spent over 
books and drawing boards. "The Prof" was, and is, a hard, studious worker, but 
was far from a bookworm. Plebe year "The Count" won his numerals in fencing 
and the next year his N. During the spring he would sail the dinks and weekends 
found him sailing yachts. Bill took his second class cruise in Highland Light when 
she sailed in the Hampton-to-New London race. Salud y buen suerte, cuate.

his time was divided between magazines, studies, and thoughts of his one and

avoided too much indoctrination by the Naval Academy system. Gifted with a

be a real sailor by his Boat Club activities, week-end ketch trips being his main 
interest. Although Rosey had many other diversions such as the Reception

that dragging sweet, young things did the trick nicely. When this delightful 
pastime could not be pursued, he ventured into other fields. A serious reader, he 
occasionally weakened and indulged in a gruesome mystery. He was known to 
smoke horrible mixtures, and to play loudly, what he laughingly termed "solid

JOSEPH FISCHER RYAN 

A Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 

fter a cruise in the Merchant Marine and a year in the Naval 
Reserve, Joe bid the "Smoky City" goodbye and joined the Navy for good. 
Plebe year was completed successfully with only minor clashes with the Academic 
departments, and after that it was smooth sailing as far as academics went. Crew 
took most of his time plebe year, but he also took an active interest in varsity track, 
battalion football, and photography to fill in his spare hours. You could find him 
at every hop or any dragging affair having a fine time, as he always will. Speed 
and efficiency are Joe's greatest assets. 

GEORGE ANTHONY SCHLICHTE, JR.

VV ell I don't see why this should be a dotted line. . . . What is 
the valence of hydrogen?" Yes, it was Squeaky studying again. Of course, he did 
more than ask questions. In the fall he played batallion soccer; in the winter he 
managed the wrestling team; and in the spring he called the stroke for the battalion 
crew. He claimed that his hobbies were photography and studying steam, but he 
was very capable at thinking up puns and wisecracks. On the intellectual side, 
Squeaky was accredited with three years service with the Newman Club and two 
years service with the Reception Committee. . . . Aid to navigators — "One wrench 
and a gear wheel from the starboard yardarm indicates that Squeaky is aboard." 
Stay clear. 

JOSEPH JULIUS SCHMIDT 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 
I -Square left peaceful Philadelphia in search of excitement — to 
be a midshipmite. Crew, Log Photo Staff, German Club, and battalion track sum 
up his activities. Inactivities — A love of music — Goodman to Stokowski; Winter 
exercise was optional — horizontal engineering, compulsory. A pseudo-redmike, 
he seldom failed to attend hops for a weekly spot of feminine pulchritude. Joe was 
an anti — quote, "Whatever it is I'm against it." Concurring with his roommates, 
he thinks quiet is definitely the stuff to have around. The Navy Medical Board 
waived his eye survey in '41. Reason: The Navy needs more men like him. 

JOSEPH AMBROSE SESTAK 

Coatesville, Pennsylvania 
Undaunted by his lack of size, this "Mighty Mite" composed of 
boundless energy, more than makes up for it by his fighting heart and determina- 
tion. This tenacity has earned him an "N" as Navy's varsity coxswain. During the 
crew off-season, tennis, wrestling, and basketball bring out his versatility. On the 
social side, a knack of handling any situation gracefully combined with his ready 
smile and gift of conversation made "Little Joe" a valuable member of the 
Reception Committee. A cheerful disposition, natural courtesy, an interest in 
others, along with his case of making friends made a combination hard to beat.

MORRIS VINTON SHIVELY 

(<c , Yeadon, Pennsylvania 

Ohive" is one fellow who didn't join the Navy to see the world — he 
has already seen most of it. Born in Abington, Illinois, "Shive" is a marine junior, 
which explains his travels. It was by way of the Marine Reserve that he came into 
the academy. His great love is athletics — all types. An athlete himself, he has a 
keen interest in sports and a vast store of athletic information. Among his many 
other worthwhile achievements, "Shive" is the best rifle and pistol shot in the Class 
of '43 . Athletics have kept him too busy for women, but women have been at- 
tracted by his tall, good looks and a pair of dimples. 

SAMUEL WENDELL WILLISTON SHOR 

«£, Cold Spring, New York 

Oouth-West by West," "Sam," or "Willie" spent his spare time at 
the Naval Academy in practicing the arts of sculling, fly-tying, and falconry. 
Second class summer he brought his falcon back from his home in New York 
state, and managed to inveigle a navy junior in the Yard into keeping the bird 
for him. At the crew shed he kept a single shell, and he hid bags of feathers for 
fly- tying around the room until a D.O. inspected them one day and left a note 
marked "Feathers adrift" in the midst of a cloud of down. He was always willing 
to give extra instruction to unsat classmates, and was kept very busy around 
exam periods. 

EDWIN LUTHER SIBERT 

T T Rio De Janeiro, Brazil 

iriow Ed got those grades with the amount of studying he did used 
to amaze his friends; for he was always ready to drop his books to play host to the 
visiting fireman. Ed's predominant interest in life seemed to be sailing; he made 
his letter easily his first year on the varsity squad. The only things that kept him 
from dinghy sailing on the Severn were storms and drags, the storms running a 
poor second to the drags. As a plebe, he won his numerals in outdoor rifle. Winter 
afternoons found him either working out in the wrestling loft or writing out 
statements for conduct reports. 

ANDREW KARL SIMMONS 
a Austin, Pennsylvania 

ixfter finishing high school, Andy set a steady course toward 
Annapolis. He strived two years to obtain the appointment which started him in 
his chosen profession. Although seldom seen at hops, he was always ready to en- 
liven a conversation with an interesting tale from New York, Caracas, or Boston. 
In the field of athletics, Andy majored in tennis. Nearly every spring and summer 
afternoon he can be found on the courts holding down one of the top positions on 
the battalion team. We have enjoyed having Andy with us these last few years and 
look forward to another cruise with him in the not too distant future.

CHARLES CHESTER SLATER 
Northampton, Massachusetts 
Introducing Chuck, the follow you can't help but like, for he always 
■on with a smile; and remarkably enough, three years at the Naval Academy 
hasn't changed that smile a bit. Every spring a sudden surge of ambition scut him 
scurrying over to the boathouse to stroke it out, but more often, afternoons found 
his beaming thee in the canteen line. Spells of golf and tennis rounded out his list 
of activities. Academically, Bull and Math were in his pet category of hates, but 
just take a look at the records and you'll find that Chuck was no bucket.

\\ here is it, let me fix it!" That's "Smitty" for you. Be it motor- 
cycles, guns, or a leaky faucet, just mention it to him and worry no more about it. 
Though hU interests are mainly mechanical, he will search the battalion for a 
mystery story, and of a sunny afternoon there is nothing he'd rather do than 
to let the frontiersman in that lanky frame of his take charge and roam the woods. 
Hi< analytical mind never seems to take much interest in the more deadly of the 
species, but he can cut a classmate's throat with the best of them.

LEONARD GREGORY SMITH, JR. 
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 
G. arrived from the metropolis of Philadelphia wearing a mop of 
jet black hair and one of the biggest smiles the U.S.N.A. has had the pleasure to 
see. During his stay on the Severn, Smitty annexed a world of popularity — that &j 
which comes only from sincerity, honesty, and keen frank wisdom. He cared little 
about class standing, and a smooth drag or fine sail could invariably turn him 
from erudition. His analytical brain, however, kept him in the first century of his 
i lass. The Navy Department will remember his mental prowess, but it's that big grin 
to which his classmates will hold. A grand liberty companion, may we meet often.

1 hat salty air tasted pretty good to "Chuck" while cruising with 
the Naval Reserve, so he left his home in Pennsylvania and came to us with a firm 
determination to be a Naval officer. Although not an athlete at heart, Chuck kept 
in trim by taking an active part in battalion soccer, gym, and track. During the 
more restful hours, he enjoyed reading, listening to good music, clay modeling, 
and working with the Reception Committee. Ambition, diligence, and an ability 
to face any task with a big broad grin are a few of the traits that will carry Chuck 
successfully through life and a Naval career.

VV hat, no paper today? Hey Mate!" Those dulcet tones can issue 
from only "Gordie," in search of his beloved Schenectady Gas Jet. Never have 
his thoughts strayed far from his happy home in upper New York. Some time, 
however, must be used by everyone for something besides pleasant thoughts of 
the past, so Gordie took to playing battalion tennis in the afternoons and was one 
of the mainstays of the team for three years. When not playing tennis, he wrote 
letters, which always seemed to bear fruit and net voluminous replies. Sometimes 
sat and sometimes not, but ever friendly and easy going. "Sure I'll drag your 
gal's friend!" — That was Gordie. 

HAROLD DUFFIELD SOLLENBERGER 

HFayetteville, Pennsylvania 
e came to us from the hills of Pennsylvania — "Fayetteville, just 
east of Chambersburg." A winning smile and charming personality soon won him 
a host of friends. During his first summer, the fencing team discovered a deter- 
mined member in their ranks. Even an unusually intelligent appearance didn't 
fool the academic departments, but they did recognize a dependable student. 
When it came to social life he was never in the background, his address book was 
an unlimited source of supply. However, in all his work and play, one goal lay 
before him — Navy Wings. With happy landings we'll see you there, Gus.

that caused the "Old Man of the Mountains" to take on his stolid stare. Even his 
consequent frequent skirmishes with the academic departments did little to daunt 
his spirit, and his dashing figure manifested itself at most of the hops. His natural 
agility and stamina were not constrained to the ballroom, however, for Bob earned 
his numerals in battalion boxing, in plebe and varsity soccer, he sailed our "big 
boats," and he lent a hand as Advertising Manager on the Trident staff. On the 
Nav bridge or in the wardroom, Bob's companionship will be priceless.

Boston Red Sox, a good book, a gym side horse, and a few 
select symphonies are all it takes to keep Bob satisfied. Quick witted, and possessing 
the handy ability to excel in everything he attempted, Bob found little trouble in 
standing at the top of his class. He enjoyed singing and many a silence has been 
broken by his rendition of "Figaro" or the equivalent. On Sundays, he diverted 
this talent into useful channels and could be found in the choir. Bob has preferred 
a life free from the delusion of women, but confidentially we think he's just waiting 
for the right one to come along.

1 he sailors generally get away with it — mostly chapel and the like, 
but their band get full advantage of the splendid assortment of facilities provided 
at the academy. Could anyone ask for more perfect weekends than those spent in 
racing our magnificent yachts? A first to finish in a widely touted ocean race added 
to the foundation called experience. Swimming, indoor rifle, flying, dinghies and 
yachts left little time for the frivolous joys of the liberty hounds. Few men saw less 
of Annapolis and more of the water than "Navy Davy." Life on board ship will 
never grow dull for this fellow.

I lebe summer failed to dampen "Mike's" enthusiasm for hiking, 
and almost any clear afternoon on a weekend he might be found tramping along 
the banks of the Severn or across the fields of Arundel. Mike had but one fault 
to find with life at the academy; the O.A.O. could make it down but once a month. 
In spite of this heart-rending grievance he managed to have a friendly word and 
ready smile for everyone. Although never one to cut throat, his steady hard work 
jone far in keeping him out of difficulties with academic departments. Wc 
know his tenacity of purpose will take him far in the Navy.

1 he only trouble with the "Chas" was that he came from the wrong 
side of the Hudson. Although his back yard wasn't the Dodger right field, to hear 
him praise the Brooklyn Bums, one would be quite apt to think so. Known for 
his humor and baseball interest, there was never a dull moment when the Chas 
was around. His serious side was seldom seen by his classmates, however, and the 
Navy admittedly comes first. Plebe skinny and math were close to the line, but 
since then the weather has been clearer and is looking better as his Naval career 
progresses. May it continue to progress as rapidly and as consistently.

Ln true Navy Junior fashion, Frank learned his ABC's in schools 
from Newport to Honolulu. But, broad as his education has been, he has had his 
troubles with the fairer sex. Nevertheless, dragging rain or shine, he keeps at it, 
always believing that SHE will be found just over the horizon. Throughout the 
year, Tommie's leisure hours have been spent mostly in swimming, while "quiet" 
sails in the ketches have lured him away over the weekends. Upon his graduation, 
his first bid is "twenty thousand leagues under the sea." Can it be his love of 
submarines or a childhood sweetheart in New London?

on physical culture, he made sure of his daily workout on the track or in some other 
form of athletics. Circulating about the hops and all social events came natural 
to Walt and he enjoyed showing all the drags a good time. Untroubled in gaining 
his 3.0, he contributed his share to extra-curriculars, working on the Press Detail 
and writing for the Log and Trident. His first passion has always been to have his

he made a habit of keeping clear of academic worries. An enviable collection of 
this our life was his favorite hobby, dreaming his favorite pastime. One could 
hardly find an Irish temper more under control. Frank's love for the finer things 
in life and his ability to enjoy all that comes his way will always keep him on the 
crest of the wave. Those of us who may be fortunate enough to be among his 
shipmates later in life will find him one of the best.

wis" began his sports career with boxing during plebe summer, 
but a physical defect soon forced him to abandon the sport. His energies were 
then directed to reading, with a noticeable fondness for biographies. His studies 
suffered somewhat as a result, but he always managed to keep himself a com- 
fortable number of jumps ahead of the Academic departments. Another of Bob's 
obsessions was unfailingly to take the opposite view to the popular one in every argu- 
ment, and then to proceed to win his point — to the utter exasperation of his op- 
ponents. His sense of reasoning and excellent wit could give no man better qualities.

foremost in mind. He is a man any commanding officer would like to have on 
board his ship. When work was to be accomplished, he gave it all he had, and 
when it was time to play he was always ready for action. An all around athlete of 
no mean ability, he derived most enjoyment from swimming, lacrosse, and 
wrestling. His pleasing personality has won him many friends at the academy, and 
we are sure it will continue to do so after he is out in the fleet, this time an ensign.

Uncertain as to his athletic ability, he tried track and basketball his plebe year,

a subtle wit which have won him many friends. Someday he hopes to be flying

with the accompanying volumes of letter-writing was given to his other love, 
sailing. Witness his racing in all of our small boats. With his sunny disposition, 
he made a popular member of the Reception Committee. This virtue, his open-

ROBERT GODFREY AMME 

Charleston, South Carolina 
>orn in the City-by-the-Sea, Bob naturally grew up with a love for 
the sea which finally led to his entering the academy. While here Bob has acquired 
main friends through his genial personality and willingness to work. Although 
he did not participate in any varsity sport, he has been active in all forms of 
intra-mura] athletics such as battalion football and company Softball. Beginning 
with his youngster year. Bob has taken active interest in the Boat Club. Bob rates 
dancing as his favorite hobby and when not taking part in any extra-curricular 
activity, he can be seen practicing new dance steps in his room. 

HARRY LEE ARNEST, JR. 

-f-rr Arlington, Virginia 

\\ hen Lee joined our class after two years of pre-med work at 
George Washington University, Virginia lost a doctor, but the Navy gained a 
potentially line officer. Though he engaged in plebe and battalion boxing and did 
some sailing on the side, Harry's favorite sport, principal hobby, and prime interest 
was dragging, and all that pertains to it. Witness the fact that he hardly ever 
missed a weekend and was chairman of the '43 Class Hop Committee. With a 
very pleasing personality, and such industry and perseverance as to be a never 
failing source of wonder to his roommate, Lee cannot fail to be a success. 

NORBERT EUGENE AUBREY, JR. 
cc j Annapolis, Maryland 

-Little" Aubrey is one hundred and forty-nine pounds of dynamite. 
What he lacks in brawn, he makes up in determination. On or off the lacrosse 
field, he was ready, willing, and able to mix it with anybody as can be attested 
by the trail of broken lacrosse sticks that he left in his wake. "Norby" was gen- 
erosity personified, ever willing to lend a helping hand or to brush away the blues. 
Many times the halls have resounded with "Hey, Aub!" His reply being invariably 
a big grin. With fighting spirit, ability to get along with people, and determination 
to attain his goal, Norbert is insured of success. 

TURNER WESTRAY BATTLE 

^ jr j Rocky Mount, North Carolina 

VV hen he entered the Naval Academy, Bat's father told him to 
give up "wine, women, and song" — Bat quit singing. He enjoyed the hops as 
much as anyone and rarely missed showing up with a 4.0 drag. Always willing to 
argue in favor of the superior social advantages of California, he fervently prayed 
for a West Coast ship. Aeronautical Engineering occupied his more serious thoughts, 
and golf took care of his physical aspirations. A dark southerner with natural charm, 
an altogether "easy to get along with fellow," Turner and his enthralling tales 
of Hollywood will be a welcomed addition to any wardroom in the fleet.

I'll tell you how it is, fellas," and B.M. was explaining the intricacies 
of academics or giving sage advice. West Virginia sent us a pilot, a voice for the 
choir, a swimmer, a real roommate, and a competent student. B.M. combined 
social and academic pursuits into that happy medium for which we all strive. His 
serious nature and sophisticated knowledge hidden by a buoyant spirit should 
make him the kind of officer this Navy needs. His first love is naval aviation in which 
he intends to specialize, and we'll be glad to row him aboard our ship any time.

BERNARD BENNETT 
Washington, D. C. 
Introducing Bernie, the lad who proved very ably that he could 
"beat the system" by always keeping at least one jump ahead of the Executive 
Department. In the fall we found him on the soccer field, valiantly defending 
Navy's goal, while in the spring, golf and tennis rounded out his athletics. His 
extra-curricular activities included work on the Log, Lucky Bag, and Trident. 
Although he did not take academics too seriously, Bernie always managed to keep 
sat with a minimum of study. His friendly attitude, sunny disposition, and happy 
smile add to his worthiness as a swell classmate and fine shipmate. 




MILTON DAWSON BENNETT 
tt -» j Rocky Mount, North Carolina 
lVlickey," as he is known to everyone, came from North Carolina 
three years ago with a determination to succeed and the ability to do it. He showed 
his prowess on the wrestling mat by becoming a champion in his first year of 
varsity competition. Then there was his reputation with the Academic Depart- 
ments as the gentleman scholar with the remarkable accent — North Carolina's 
contribution to that famous Southern drawl. To the ancient Greeks, the ideal 
man was one who was religious and excelled in scholastics and athletics. The 
"Mick" was tops in all these, and we feel sure that a real future lies ahead for him 
in the service.

HENRY BAXTER BOTTOMS 

Margarettsville, North Carolina 
ith a firm belief that "Sherman's march was a retreat" and a 
rebel yell on his lips, Baxter came here after two years at Elon College. A southern 
gentleman with a southern accent, he would argue endlessly for his South. His 
never troubling too much about the future tripped him in the academic hurdles, 
but he came through successfully. Track was his sport; Baxter liked high-jumping 
even better than "shooting the breeze." Water, however, was absolutely not his 
element as any member of the sub squad could testify. He would listen to your 
story and offer sympathy, and if you needed a friend, you could count on him.

ROBERT GRAHAM BRADLEY 
r-p Washington, D. C. 

1 here was never a dull moment around Bob. One of our Class's 
best exponents on swing, he was evidence that academy life could be made 
enjoyable. Even a military prep school background couldn't stiffen him out, and 
without a great concern for the threats of the Academic department, he spent 
most of his time playing the latest by Benny Goodman. "R.G." was stung during 
2/c leave and got a greater thrill when she telephoned him, than he did in winning 
a place on the battalion wrestling team. His genial nature and ever-ready com- 
radeship combined with a love of the sea make it a unanimous "shipmate" 
from all hands. 

FRANCIS XAVIER BRADY 
Baltimore, Maryland 
scholar, athlete, and all-around good fellow may best describe 
Frank. While at prep school and college, Frank learned his math, football, and 
lacrosse; and upon this foundation has made an excellent scholastic and athletic 
reputation. Perseverance, hard work, and the will to win have characterized his 
every undertaking and consequently he has achieved All American honors in 
lacrosse. Frank's amiable manner, cheerful disposition and optimistic views are 
the bright spots in a routine life. Ever ready to help a classmate, his extra instruc- 
tion would put many a prof to shame. Good work, Frank and these same qualities 
will carry you far in your subsequent Naval career. 

HENRY BRESS 

T j Norfolk, Virginia 

ilank was a typical happy-go-lucky Southern gentleman and true 
lover of wine, women, and song. Almost always the last person to get to formations 
on time (next to his roommate), he stepped out of character when it came to 
boxing or arguing. Fortunately, he put the arguing to good use in the Quarterdeck 
Society. He was secretary of that organization and the person who really put it in 
the limelight. Henry proved his worth when he coached the plebe debating team 
and brought victory to the first battalion. It will be "V for Victory" all the way 
when Hank goes out to "fight the fleet." 

CLIFFORD LEON BROWN 

. T Portsmouth, Virginia 

llis mother called him "Clifford"; his femmes called him "Cliff," 
hul his classmates knew him as just plain "little man." But whether we called him 
"short-stride" or "Cliff" there was always a smile welcoming us which was an 
integral part of this little southern gentleman from Virginia. Cliff came to Uncle 
Sam's institution with aspirations for stars, but soon gave them up for bunk drills 
and dragging. This, with his activities on Reef Points and an occasional trip to the 
wrestling mat filled his afternoons. Anytime of day usually found him yelling 
"Who swiped my Cosmo?" or "Hey Mister, Where's Norfolk Navy Yard." In 
"Shorty," femmes, boys and the fleet acquire one of the best of all sandblowers.

MELVIN WILBUR BROWN 
£<ttt Baltimore, Maryland 

W hat big city is Baltimore near, Mister?" Yep, Mel is a Mary- 
lander and proud of it, even though he attributes too much importance to a sub- 
urb. A savoir, Mel traded Johns Hopkins for Navy where he felt his competitive 
abilities would never languish. A true "Field and Stream" sportsman, he made 
frequent mention of the tall ones that got away on that Minnesota hunting trip. 
The ladies were the one big worry for Mel, a confirmed "snake," to whom the 
weeks were breaks between weekends. His sense of humor and his friendliness will 
make him a good shipmate. His ability and intelligence will make him a good officer.

JOSEPH MASON CAMPBELL 

Richmond, Virginia 
salty, solid southerner from Richmond, Virginia — that's our Joe. 
Unruly hair, a twinkle in his eye, a glib tongue, and perfect dancing made him a 
success with the fair sex. Joe came to us from the fleet via the Norfolk Naval 
Academy Preparatory School to establish himself as one of the most popular 
members of our class. Plebe year found him on the cross country course and later 
in the boxing ring. Youngster year he was still in the squared circle, and was also 
representing his company. Most every weekend some sweet young thing had him 
in tow, otherwise he was out sailing, playing tennis, or reading some good book.

JJud was born two thousand years too late. The ancient Greeks 
would have been proud to rub shoulders with this blond haired Adonis, for Bud 
is a staunch believer in physical perfection. More than one O.O.W., in making 
reveille inspection, interrupted his morning calisthenics. A lover of athletics, he 
played football, basketball, and lacrosse. If there were more seasons of the year, 
you can bet he would have been out for more sports. His ambition to be an en- 
gineer, Bud thrived on the more technical academics. With such a balance between 
physical and mental perfection, what can keep this Crabtown lad from the top?

Gatesville, North Carolina 
om, if not the original and foremost "southern gentleman," is 
the undisputed runner-up. His charm and smile have won him a host of friends — 
all he meets are conquered. That half-inch gold stripe for his sleeve has consumed 
much of Tom's attention, but he still took part in extra-curricular activities by 
managing the Fencing Team and by holding down first base of the Regimental 
champion softball team. Raising havoc among the ranks of the fairer sex has been 
Tom's chief hobby, and a rather delightful assortment they were, but he has now 
been narrowed down to one. As a classmate, he was one of the best — as a friend, 
Tom was "tops."

/\jnbition; that is a one-word description of Jim. An Eagle Scout, a 
in in his high school cadet corps, a member of the Marine Air Corps Reserve, 
and a -indent at Randies Prep — these were Jim's stepping stones toward his 
lifelong ambition to become a Naval officer. Jim, however, believed in mixing 
the sweet v\ith the bitter -proven by his dragging record and the fact that he 
-pent hour upon hour playing tennis. The Marine Air Corps Reserve must have 
left a little of that nncxplainable something in Jim's blood, and the future will 
undoubtedly find Jim in the air. Happy landings, Jim!

ful manner which won him so many friends. Not unlike the average American, 
lie likes sports, sweet swing, and above all else the fairer sex. He is a good mixer 
and a connoisseur of beauty, in spite of a slight bashfulness which overcomes him 
at times. 1 f< wever, the Major's chief claim to fame was a military air and bearing 
that denotes ability to command. Ever since plebe summer, Brad has proven that he 
can can - ) plenty of gold on his sleeve, and be every inch an officer in any emergency.

able friends, while somber dark eyes had their moments of seriousness. Romantic 
a Hairs were light, and experience a good teacher. A stubborn Irish soul, caring 
not to win but play, made nothing a failure. His nothings include a natural 
ability at track, basketball, and, oddly enough, excellent poetry. The wings he'll

never -ay die will that is an inherent requirement for all good flying men.

Leet a man with a wealth of naval experience behind him. 
Although his sea duty consisted of a summer cruise on the U.S.S. Hamilton as a 
reservist, it enabled him to win his appointment. Just name any ship in the fleet, 
and Hank can tell you anything you want to know about it. Although not a 
particularly savvy individual in the field of academics, he stood in the upper half 
of the class without any difficulty. Last winter Henry Ortland counted heavily on 
Hank in the free-style events. Hank hopes that some day, after a tour of duty on 
the big ships, he can come back to his first love — the U.S.S. Hamilton.

PAUL RICHARD COPELAND, JR. 

Huntington, West Virginia 
lanky cosmopolite, Jim grew up in Idaho, Florida, New York, 
West Virginia, and points west. Though he is occasionally serious, his lighter 
moments prevail, and perhaps his soberness is a result of chance bouts with old 
man academics. Already a gentleman and having decided to become an officer, 
he put aside all else until that goal was attained. He adapts himself well to any 
situation, and, though usually smiling, he can be the gloomiest man in the academy. 
Jim believes in himself and has confidence in his ability. Open frankness, willing 
cooperation, and easy disposition made him a good roommate, and will make 
him an ideal shipmate. 

EDWARD JOSEPH GUMMINGS, JR. 

-j-, Washington, D. C. 

r ollowing in the footsteps of his father, who saw service in the Navy 
Medical Corps, Eddie chose the Navy as a career. He spent his first year at 
Georgetown University, but he finally realized his lifelong ambition and entered 
the Naval Academy. Being rather quiet and reserved you could always find him 
on the football field or on the track when these sports were in season — never the 
spectacular or prominent figure — but the hard, conscientious worker that he is 
in all his undertakings. With that serious nature but ever pleasant "playful twinkle" 
in his eye, he'll go far in anything he sets out to accomplish. 

JOHN JAMES SHARMAN DANIEL 

-rjrj Claxton, Georgia 

W ith a keen mind, accurate judgment, and a knack at concentra- 
tion which enabled him to use his abilities to good advantage, the Deacon has 
known little trouble with academics. Yet he was never one to permit lessons to 
crowd out all pleasures, the inevitable attraction of crew forced his interests in an 
athletic direction, and soon we were amazed to see Dany's lanky frame broaden 
out into smoother lines. In the evenings, his cheerful smile was always a pleasant 
touch to a friendly gathering of classmates, and his card tricks never ceased to 
astound us. Quiet, unassuming and reliable, John was above all a good friend. 



HOWARD ELLIS DANNER 
«-. j Beaufort, South Carolina 

IVLuh mammy calls me Junebug, so I reckon das my name." So 
saying, Danner swung into a losing battle with the dago department, for, although 
"suh" and "honey chile" influenced too many of his classmates' girl friends, a 
man who never pronounced an "r" in his life was no match for a Spanish infinitive. 
"The Bug" collected friends and nicknames until his casual strolls took on the 
aspect of a politician at a Union picnic. His athletic ability led him to sleeping and 
pole-vaulting as his favorite indoor and outdoor sports, respectively. He lettered 
in track, bridge, handball, and the Committee sessions.

military man of Southern lineage, Jaque came from Marion. He 
was a striper plebe summer and devoted his plebian afternoons to the plebe track 
team, his specialty the quarter mile. On becoming a youngster he was equally 
adept at running the 440 and the plebes. This ability stood him in good stead on 
the Flying Squadron whenever he managed to save up enough to drag. Second 
class year he got his hands on a star boat and after working a long time to get it 
in shape his reward came from those long afternoons of blue water sailing. Not a 
snake, his big loves are the Service, his pipes, and sailing.

'ne of Navy's best hurdlers, Joe won his "N" in track in his meet 
against Army. Track was not his only sport as every fall afternoon found him on the 
football field. In the classroom, he held his own and his qualities of leadership 
stood him in good stead during the three years at the Naval Academy. But we will 
remember Joe for his never-failing good humor, his natural sense of comradeship, 
and his high ideals. These qualities will contribute to his continued success in the 
fleet for these are qualities appreciated in a brother officer. We look forward to the 
future when we may again be shipmates.

both ingenuousness and ingeniousness. Here was a fellow who read Cosmo and still 
starred. During the fall and spring he sailed the dinghies, crewed in the big boats, 
and skippered the yawls; the winter found him either boning sailing books or 
drawing plans for his own cutter — during leave he even left the moon over Miami 
to sail in the New London-Hampton race. We remember how he went for his 
bunk drills and his passion for keeping a messy B-hole, but we loved him almost 
as well as we did that monthly contribution of Florida oranges.

— practical and otherwise! He was a conversationalist of rare talent and merit — 
one who could talk about anything, argue on either side of any issue, and supply 
an abundance of repartee and wit. May his shipmates on the turbulent seas ahead

of varsity letters in tennis, soccer, and wrestling, as well as plebe numerals in 
boxing. Not only was Bill a participant, but he was a topnotch writer of sports 
and became the Log sports editor his first class year. The Trident and Lucky Bag

his natural tiredness by saying that he needed rest. Nevertheless he found time to 
participate in swimming and crew during each of his three years and to drag 
occasionally on the side. He was a plebe swimmer but later switched to the 
battalion team. On the salty side, he showed himself to be a real sailor, always 
knowing how to catch the wind just right when he sailed. We're still in the dark 
on his love life, however, never having been able to pin him down one way or the

Cat. "Conga's" terpsichorean ability was amazing. He was always at the hops, 
and that curly hair and friendly smile drew the women like a magnet. He was an 
ideal wife. One minute he would be without a care while the next might find him 
studying like mad. Unselfish and understanding, his greatest gift was that of 
forming firm and lasting friendships. Becoming a good officer should be a natural 
step for him.

was proud of his ability as a gymnast and cheer leader. The fact that the youngsters 
did not have a European cruise did not worry Bob, as he had already been across 
the pond while playing the clarinet in an orchestra on a passenger liner. His 
interest in music soon developed into a love of the classics. He was a swell sport, 
an understanding companion, and a gentleman. With a foundation like this, 
coupled with a pleasing personality, Bob ought to go far.

W here are you from Mister?" "Er, sir I'm from North Carolina,

these words this Navy Junior made his informal entrance into the academy. Being 
too light for varsity sports, "Duke" restricted his abilities to battalion athletics 
where he gained a fine reputation in lacrosse and soccer. Duke is a real ladies' 
man and there will be many tears shed when this old sailor puts out to sea. Jack 
fought hard to stay in the academy, and when a man fights as hard as he did to be 
a Naval officer you can't stop him. That's why we're pulling for you, Admiral; 
keep fightin'.

swimming squad all three years of his career. According to his own statement, he 
has had more roommates than anyone else in the regiment, seven in all, and

ljill was a true "Tarheel" and used to howl at the joyous reminis- 
cences of his sojourn with the "Wolfpack" of North Carolina State College, his 
first alma mater. Some of his favorite yarns were really worth telling. Classmates 
can vouch to that. His ambition was to earn his "Wings" in the Naval Air Service 
and in later life retire to a farm in his beloved Carolina. In his spare time, Bill 
helped in the stage productions for three years as a member of the Stage Gang, 
and was a member of the Log staff for three years. Bill's diversions were about 
equally divided between dragging, sailing, tennis, bridge, Cosmo, and sleep.

ilugh hails originally from Santo Domingo. In July, 1939, he left 
the Naval Reserve for the U.S.N.A. The ambition to become as good an officer 
as his dad, together with hard work, pulled him through his academics. Dragging 
ran a close second to the studies in Hugh's stay here; either crew, wrestling, and 
swimming filling in his spare time. He was also a member of the company pistol 
team. He derived much pleasure from old time music and good beer when he 
could get them. Hugh's ability to enjoy himself and make friends easily, plus his 
diligence, should see him well on. the way to the top.

that putt the pills. His peachy complexion and curly hair keep the eternal snake 
out of the stag lines and in the midst of social lore. Our early conception of Navy

hi- "N" in Cross country and in track. His milder vices are singing in the choir, 
playing tennis, and dragging. That fighting heart developed putting out down

Georgia Tech with worlds of friends, broken-hearted women, and various other 
forms of entertaining elements left behind. Neither the strict discipline nor the 
rough academic routine slowed Jackson down, and he stormed from room to room 
leaving hosts of friends laughing at his hilarious stories. He also found plenty of 
time for his women, reading, and golf, and his other major interest, aviation. 
Jackson has a smile and a personality worth a million. This, combined with such

not. Youngster year he became a charter member of the 10/20 club. His sea-

soccer, swimming and Glee Club left him little spare time. Came youngster year,

/oming from one of Baltimore's famed high schools better known as 
"Poly," Jack whizzed through plebe year in high gear as well as each succeeding 
year. Very well adapted to the art of studying and to the military life, he also likes 
good recreation, especially reading books . . . from law to the latest gory murder 
stories. Few girls hereabouts know of his congenial smile and his pleasing manners 
. . . not that he is a "red mike," but cause for "many a yar" he's had an O.A.O. 
With the familiar box of chow always on hand, he has had more than many a 
friend. For a fellow to confide in or to trust, in the fleet or wherever he may be, 
you'll never find one better than Jack. 

SPOTTISWOODE WELLFORD RANDOLPH, JR. 

£, Charlottesville, Virginia 

Otraight from the Old Dominion Bim brought definite ideas of the 
"Ole South," politics, wine, and women, and he would argue vociferously on any 
of them. His remarkable philosophy of physical exertion was to have potential 
strength for what might come, but for the honor of the Third Battalion, Randy 
rowed his heart out, and not satisfied with this, was a speedy member of the 
Battalion swimming team as well. He was a steady uphill worker and the way he 
carried his share made us say "Well Done." With his love for the sea, and for a 
certain Naval officer's daughter, Bim will be the center of a happy Navy family. 



JAMES MUNCASTER REAVES 
a Martinsburg, West Virginia 

l\ mountaineer from West Virgina, "Jeeves" came to the Naval 
Academy after an all too delightful year of college. Consequently, things like 
reveille and formations didn't make too big a hit with him. However, he remained 
his easy going self all through plebe year and youngster cruise. Wrestling was 
Jim's favorite sport. He took it up youngster year and made the varsity squad. In 
the summer he played tennis for the battalion team. Other things interested him, 
but nothing worried him much unless it was "pulling sat and staying sat." Then, 
as always, his luck and determination got him by the toughest trials.

-pv Charleston, South Carolina 

Jrlebe year found "Rebel" in the water not only figuratively in 
Bancroft, but actually, in the pool on the plebe team, in the bay sailing, or at 
battalion crew. Liberty after Glee Club or Choir trips lured him into those direc- 
tions for two years. While the Academic Department seemed to be hot on his trail, 
Barney, like the well-known rabbit was always a jump ahead. The Rebel spends 
his free time sailing, at the crew house, occasionally dragging, and often helping 
along troubled plebes; but his many friends say his favorite pastime is combining 
bunk drill with telling tall stories.

DEITZ ANDERSON RUDISILL 
Lenoir, North Carolina 
product of the North Carolina mountains, Rudy has clung 
steadfast to a firm conviction in his principles, and through an assumed insouciant 
attitude has viewed the Navy's system with a slightly cynical eye. Plebe year he 
devoted his spare moments to the Log, but later to the Sailing Team and the Lucky 
Bag. Always anxious for either an afternoon of wrestling or a friendly argument 
on any subject you might choose, Deitz has weathered the cyclonic winds of 
a< ademic fury to become a connoisseur of beautiful women with an appreciative 
eye for the finer things of this life, and a warm friendly character that we have 
all enjoyed knowing. 

MERRILL HOMER SAPPINGTON 
. Barnesville, Georgia 

JLieaving a land of peaches and deep Southern drawls to enter a new 
world oi staunch ships and blue waters was a trivial step for "Sappy." He easily 
adjusted himself to his new environment, for during plebe year his rifle shooting 
led the team to a National Intercollegiate Small Bore title. Always a keen com- 
petitor he won the silver medal in the class of '43 match for general excellence in 
mall arms. Fast development into one of Navy's best riflemen made him the 
natural choice for captain first class year. Sappy's infectious grin, jovial nature, 
and natural ability will always speak for themselves. 

DAVID AUSTIN SIIONERD

1 J.f.t Shonerd has naval tradition behind him, his father and two 
oldei brothei having preceded him to the fleet. No one having known him, 
could fail to like him. During "bull sessions," he is the quietest of all, and when 
everyom else i ou1 ol breath, Dave will usually have a single pertinent remark to 
make. On the e occa ions, he lias a way of presenting his informal ion in the form 
<.f rare, di ;■ '■■■ it, aftei w hi< h, he raises his eyes and smiles shyly. This is usually his 
only offering to the 1 onversation and, be< ause it is short, to the point and not un-

Dutchman came to us from our nation's capital. Plebe year 
saw him as manager of the tennis team and a member of the champion Freshman 
Intercollegiate Rifle Team. Having won a Naval Reserve appointment, Dutch 
continued the good work and has been in the upper part of our class. Smoke Hall 
was his favorite hangout. The attractions — table tennis and informals. Johnny, our 
class's number one French student, has helped guide the French Club, having been

JAMES EUGENE SMITH 

MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA 

coming to the academy from the hills of West Virginia, Snuffy 
early proved his military ability by his gunnery and work on the now legendary 
drill platoon. Since then he has proven that he is not only military-minded, but 
dramatically and socially-minded as well. When he was not out rooting our 
athletic teams to victory, we could find him taking part in the Masqueraders' 
activities. Although he didn't claim to be a social butterfly, his drags were in- 
variably queens. This habit of picking out beautiful women makes us wonder if 
he'll be happy at sea. But never fear! Smitty likes the service and has the ability 
to enjoy himself under any condition.

ick was hard on roommates. His first bilged plebe year, and his 
second stood in imminent peril. He starred, of course. He invited the Officer of the 
Watch to join unauthorized gatherings in our room during evening stud)- hour, 
when I was in charge of the room. I could forgive him for everything else, but he 
used to hide my mail, and that was too much. He supported certain activities for 
certain reasons; outdoor rifle to wear a letter on his bathrobe, choir for the annual 
trip to (and liberty in) Washington, and Glee Club for the sheer joy of annoying 
others. But in spite of all his faults, he's one of the best.

Washington, D. C. 
Laybe he wasn't the most help in the world when a fellow felt like 
studying, but he could always be relied upon in the pinches. His cheerful and sunny 
disposition brightened the room in fair weather or foul. He was never too tired to 
try a new swing step, and equally ready to help a classmate out of a jam. Although 
the Executive department made sporadic attempts to chastise him, "Smitty," 
having been raised in lawless D.C., was usually able to elude its grasp (with the 
inspiration of a lovely brownette) . Trying every sport, his afternoons were spent 
on the athletic fields. His ingenuity, perseverance, and boundless enthusiasm will 
help him in his engineering pursuits. 







MORRIS ROUZER SNEAD 

^ Washington, D. C. 

v^ an one of you who have known him recall a moment of dislike or 
unpleasantly? Sincere, jovial, and principled are mere words, but when applied 
to Moe they acquire a veritable depth of meaning. No matter how freely we were 
admitted to his acquaintance, \vc lost not one iota of respect for him; yet, he has 
always been unpretentiously "one of the fellows." Though unheralded, he has not 
been at all inactive in affairs about the campus. Energetic, forthright, and possessed 
of an exuberance of that uncommon common sense, he will, we predict in all 
earnestness, be an object of emulation in the service, particularly in that obsession 
of his — the U.S. Marine Corps.

>en first won his way into our hearts the day he sprang to attention 
and clacked his bare heels while taking his medical exam. Always military, yet 
never failing to smile or to stop for a friendly conversation, Sammy was everyone's 
friend. He was a star member of the battalion football, tennis, and lacrosse teams 
and a varsity boxer. In the evenings, he attended the Newman Club, Chess Club, 
and worked on Reef Points. Beneath a rollicking laughing personality, Ruben was 
dead serious about this fighting business, and was ready and eager to sacrifice 
everything for one ultimate objective. We vie in our affections for Ruben!

lS may be easily inferred, "Doug" is a staunch Confederate, and 
plebe year he spent many hours explaining why he couldn't learn "Marching 
Through Georgia." His interest in foreign affairs and in national events is con- 
siderable and the extent of his knowledge is indicated by the fact that plebe year 
he won the Naval Order of the United States Junior Prize in Current History. On 
the afternoons when he manages to overcome the lure of the radiator squad he 
can be observed playing a better than average game of golf or tennis.

know where California is and doesn't particularly care. Jackie tried almost every 
sport in the books, but his favorite was all America's favorite — that great game of 
baseball. His southern hospitality and personality have won Jack a host of friends 
both within his team and in the Regiment as a whole. He has stuck to his O.A.O. 
of B.P.I, throughout his years at the Naval Academy and she seems to have been 
true to him. We all wish him the very best of everything.

Winter Park, Florida 
Ufter Hope left his beloved Florida for the academy, he found time 
to participate in battalion sports in the Fall and play in the snow in the Winter. 
When the weekends rolled around, he gave the regiment a treat by dragging one 
of the queens — for which he was famous. "Wolf" got a big kick out of reading his 
exploits in his home town paper and was ever ready to keep his wives posted on 
new developments in the orange grove business. Perhaps someday, after making 
a name for himself in the fleet, Hope will retire and own an orange grove of his 
own. If so, it can't help but be the best grove in the country.

aiding, by pun or subtle remark, the spark of wit to any conversa- 
tion, Joe nicely balanced his sometimes reserved self with an appreciative sense of 
humor. Easy-going in nature, he has, never-the-less, an insatiable desire to do 
everything he attempts with an eye to perfection. This laudable tendency was a 
trifle contested by the Skinny Department, but there are stumbling blocks in 
every man's life. Joe's abundant knowledge has worried many a plebe and, since 
one of his chief interests was keeping up with current events, he will make a well- 
informed and entertaining shipmate.

it came. Nothing ever worried him except the source of his next cigarette. Versatile, 
easy-going, and a skilled tinkerer, he was an excellent shipmate and will always 
have friends about him. When he was in the gym he was a man's man, but in the 
company of the fairer sex he was a ladies' man. As the result of extensive studies in 
mathematics and electrical engineering during his three years at the academy, 
Sully has permanently accepted the fact that F = MA.

sailor from way back, J. P. came to Navy Tech from Tidewater, 
Virginia and took over the sailing team and the Boat Club. His motto, "There's 
nothing like a good workout," was well supported by his daily routine of rowing a 
few miles, taking several laps around the track and then tearing into the wrestling 
team. Occasionally "Jug-Haid" took time off from his favorite sport, serving extra 
duty, to serve on the Reception Committee or to drag one sweet little blonde. 
Although he always lost to the Executive department, his battles with the Academic 
departments never resulted in his swinging on the bush.

ORION AUGUSTINE TEMPLETON 

Lynchburg, Virginia 
Lere's a real Virginia hillbilly from Lynchburg who brags about 
his Senator Glass and isn't ashamed of the way he pronounces "out" and "about." 
Plebe and youngster years he played guard in battalion football and wrestled on 
the battalion team, but after he got a front tooth knocked out in scrimmage he 
stuck to varsity wrestling and started pistol shooting. Although his name is Orion, 
classmates call him everything from "Marmaduke" and "Blivit" to "Temp." 
When plebes ask him what a Blivit is, he will always answer "a baby superman" 
and have them do some "push ups." How can you better a combination of brain 
and brawn? 

JAMES ARTHUR UNDERWOOD, JR.

1 he South has sent many good men to the academy, but "Dixie" 
topped them all in my estimation. As the result of a tour of Annapolis with a group 
from his home town, he felt the compelling urge to make the Navy his career. 
From the day of his entrance, he made a commendable record at the academy in 
academics as well as in sports. He helped the track team win many victories, but 
also took pleasure in tennis, bowling and sailing. A fine sense of humor, pleasing 
disposition and abundance of knowledge were the qualities by which we recognized 
him. A successful future lies ahead for him in the fleet. 



MAURICE EDWIN WALL 

T Spartanburg, South Carolina 

It didn't take "Brick" long to acquire his natural nickname. With 
this monicker he got a host of new friends who were attracted by his extremely 
easy-going, likable manner. Anytime Brick wasn't dragging one of his many 
queens, you could find him listening to some recording or reading. But in spite of 
his other "educational activities," he was a member of the Reception Committee 
and a mainstay on the second battalion tennis team. During plebe year he joined 
the French and Boat Clubs, and was active in the Quarterdeck Society. Maybe 
that is where he learned that smooth line he used on the women.

grand fellow — that's Wuzzy. A great personality and an army of

a nightmare. Nevertheless, Wuzzy found ample time for his swimming, track, and 
tennis. But confidentially his real love is tramping through a Carolina woods on 
a crisp autumn afternoon with his gun and dogs. "Women are snares and illusions," 
you'd hear him say, but did you notice how he always turned up with a queen on 
the weekends? But being a lover, boning for exams, or trying to beat the system — 
it was all great sport with Wuzzy — a perfect wife.

L rom the hills of Virginia, a smile on his face, always ready to lend 
a helping hand, came our boy Sam. From his quiet nature and modest character 
one would never suspect that a certain brown-eyed blonde was his chief interest. 
It must be admitted that the radiator squad had a conscientious member, but he 
still managed to take an active interest in the Boat Club. Once a Chemistry major 
in college, Sam was always a valuable asset in solving "skinny" probs, the only 
objection to rooming with him being that he invariably went to sleep during study 
hour, disturbing the peace by allowing his book to fall solidly to the deck.

Tarheels lost a brilliant student. In his spare time when not indulging in sports, 
such as wrestling, battalion football, track, and Softball, his favorite amusement 
was getting a room full of jazz loving plebes and learning new dance steps, which 
he never used at the hops. His long name combined with his many activities more 
than compensated for his short height. His keen sense of humor, frankness, and his 
ability to accomplish tasks should bring Whizzer success in any profession.

lo follower of precedent is John. He's an "Army Brat" but he got 
the word. "Wick" divided his free time between sailing and wrestling. During the 
winters his address was the wrestling loft, and the summers found him steering a 
dinghy for the sailing team. Throughout the years here, any week end that wasn't 
spent in dragging was put in as a full time member of the Spindrift crew. For 
three years the academic departments tried to develop his hidden talents. Their 
success will give the Navy a serious officer, yet a shipmate whose quick wit brings 
him countless friends.

to many a victory. In the spring he gave his all for the track team. His leisure hours 
were -pent idlv in a sailboat or on his bunk. Passing to the question of women,

who came up to the Naval Academy from Virginia and brought the traditions of 
the South to the boys from the North of the Mason-Dixson line. His contagious 
friendliness soon proved to everybody that it doesn't take an Act of Congress to 
make every man a gentleman. Further endowed with a fine sense of judgment 
and a sharp intelligence, "'Pinky" erased a great deal of the mystery surrounding 
the academics and has set a high mark which he is likely to maintain, and which 
no doubt will be a constant reminder to others of his value as a friend and shipmate.

friend- and his abundant sense of humor took away a little of life's strain, helping 
us to be a little more philosophic about it all. Fred's bitter struggles with Math are 
legendary, but perseverance and tenacity kept "Fearless Freddy" with us. Still 
searching for his place in the world, we're sure he'll liven many an otherwise 
dreary moment in the future.

of the course at the academy. There is only one thing that he likes better than 
exercise and sailing — yes, dragging. He had a very good chance of making the gym 
team, but the young members of the fairer sex lured him from the gymnasium. 
His main trouble was keeping his "File of fair women" straight and finding time 
to drag them all. Because there were not enough weekends, he often had to work 
a few in on weekdays.

for his burning desire to go places and enjoy life. We came to know him as a

he had what it takes. As an athlete, R.S. was a gym man and swimmer at heart, 
but had a mean backhand stroke on the tennis court when occasion demanded.

he will be the steady plugger who'll carry the torch when the others give up. His 
quiet unobtrusive but efficient manner will in the long run display his ability 
to overcome trying situations.

1 he big man with the broad grin came from middle Texas. With a 
second lieutenant's commission in the cavalry staring him in the face upon his 
graduation from Texas A. & M., Homer decided to forsake the Army and give 
the sea-going end of the service a try. A swimmer and a horseman may appear to 
be a strange combination, but our hero was as at home in the swimming pool as 
he was in the saddle. A member of the varsity squad for two years, he more than 
contributed his share to the successes of the Navy varsity. An excellent card player 
and a loyal friend, Homer will make a good shipmate wherever he is stationed.

■iter knowing him, you cease to wonder why the home-town belles 
were draped in mourning when Bill left. He got his start that way back in Clay 
County, where his popularity extended to all maidens on both sides of the mountain. 
His first love, women, has never been subdivided, but athletics have not been 
entirely unheeded. In the fall, Butch is out barking signals for the battalion football 
team, and spring finds him playing Tarzan off the high board in the natatorium. 
Our most pleasant memories of the Naval Academy are associated with this gay, 
nonchalant fellow. Here's real officer material and a fine shipmate.

Madison, Wisconsin 
Lfter two years at the University of Wisconsin, the Naval Academy 
proved to be a greater attraction to Earl. He brought with him his suave 
personality, his love of music (from Bach to Boogie), his dancing feet, and a passion 
for bridge and a good argument. Not too athletically inclined, Jake found time to 
tear himself away from his studies, good literature and bridge to play an active 
roll on our company Softball team and battalion tennis squad. On Sunday after- 
noons, provided he wasn't dragging or "flaked out," he could be found in Smoke 
Hall making inspirational record selections for the informal dance.

proudly drawled, "Tennessee, suh," Andy's remotest friend recognizes him. 
Although from that section of our country where the largest body of water is a full 
rain barrel, he immediately took to the briny deep and added sailing to his varied 
list of hobbies, which include bowling, the Radio Club and an already overflowing 
address book. An expert marksman through environment, Andy was a member of 
the company and varsity pistol teams. His ever lasting patience and calm, easy 
nature will, as in the past, carry him far on the trail to success.

m enthusiastic interest in electricity caused Dante, alias "Nick," 
to spend many an hour with the Electrical Gang at Mahan Hall. His vivid imagina- 
tion often produced unique ideas for utilizing electricity. However, participating 
with the battalion gym team was his way of developing physically. Never troubled 
by academics, he frequently had time for a magazine or sea novel. As a member 
of the Boat Club he gained practical sailing knowledge, while he consumed his 
spare time by making square knot belts and boosting the city of Canton. His 
congenial nature and pleasant disposition are in his favor for a Naval career.

down for the weekend and letting them fight it out between themselves. The span 
of his athletic career covered plebe boxing and battalion football. He played two 
years as goalie on the battalion soccer team and still had time to manage the out- 
door rifle team. Famous for his quick wit and long-buried puns, Frank used his 
oratorical ability in countless lengthy arguments with his wives.

potential 200 pound tackle, but we won the shake. The Army kept after this man 
— with chest so manly he was once papped for being out of uniform after the word 
had been passed "No jersies." While still one of the pampered pets, he was offered 
a second lieutenant's commission in the Infantry Reserve. As long as he had his 
ropes to climb and facilities for a good game of bridge were offered, Pancho found 
perfect contentment, if not peace, at the academy.

years with better success than most. Along with wrestling and lacrosse, Bill has 
found time for the Boat Club, Photographic Club, and Movie Gang, with academics 
as a sideline. This versatile sandblower with his flair for photography, cowboy 
boots, and six-shooters will be in his natural element when he gets into one of

natural ingenuity of a square-rigged bronc buster like Bill.

part in varsity boxing and baseball as well as battalion Softball and basketball. 
He professed a disinterestedness in women but dragged occasionally and seemed 
to gel along well each time. Very able at informal discussion and argument, as

Boat Club, and the company pistol team were all well acquainted with his activities. 
Then too, there were many evenings that he came back to the room groaning over 
the sore spots he had received in the wrestling loft. Here is the perfect example

places for him on lacrosse and soccer teams, while his powerful arms made him 
regimental boxing champ. Although always ready for an argument, his only 
enemies were reveille and excess weight, against which he waged a constant battle.

Whenever the sun was shining, which was quite often, he was at the golf course 
slicing and hooking but managing to get and keep a steady position on the golf 
team and still have time to sail with young ladies on the Severn. During the 
winter months he bowled, slept, and dragged often enough to wear himself down 
and then build himself up successively. Pete was discouraged by the absence of 
southern blue-eyed girls like those at "Ole Miss," but after long hours of effort 
he developed himself to at least listen to a Yankee.

lVlickey, the dragger, upheld the traditional chivalry of the old 
South with the fairer sex. Except for the time when he was occupied with a Math 
re-exam, hardly a weekend passed that he didn't have a date. He was neither a 
savoir nor a bucket. The first was not always the best, though, and he just got 
along. Varsity sports didn't attract him, but he was always around for battalion 
softball and football. His Gulf Coast sailing experience came in handy, and for 
those more sophisticated moments he turned to his violin and the orchestra. He was 
a great play-boy, but his personality and ability to get around should carry him far.

(pop. 833) to come to the academy, but he soon became deeply entrenched in our 
organization and its activities. During the winter you could find him tinkering 
with a radio set or trying to build one. Reading and the Reception Committee 
were his year-long activities, except on springtime afternoons when he was pole- 
vaulting for the track team. Ed's simple philosophy is, "where there's a will, there's 
a way," and this determination puts two strikes on whatever he undertakes.

Landsome, yet rugged, after the Irish manner — such is a description 
of George Bryan. His Celtic personality combines a sense of humor (warped from 
use in all kinds of weather), a lazy streak spasmodically interrupted by bursts of 
action, and a mixture of Welsh mysticism and stoicism which accounts for his 
variety of moods. He won his black "N" early youngster year, and was called 
"Teddy Bear" commemorating an unfortunate clash with the Executive depart- 
ment. He was a good friend giving much and expecting much. To life he gives 
much and expects ample returns.

In the year 1845 the Union was admitted to Texas:" quote Mr. 
Buchanan. Buck brought from the South a genuine love of music, and a mastery 
of several musical instruments. His good academic record reflected that he was a 
const ientious worker, yet he could be counted on to find time to join eagerly in a 
good hot argument. Buck's athletic activities were confined principally to golf and 
tennis, his active interest in model airplane building and collecting recordings 
taking up the majority of his remaining free moments. His dragging was moderate, 
always keeping in the back of his mind the O.A.O. still in Texas. Forceful, and a 
man you can depend on, '43 is glad to have had him as a classmate.

These qualities he carried to the rifle and pistol ranges to win more than a few 
medals and prove that he can "hold 'em and squeeze 'em." He claimed that 
"Bunk drill" was his favorite sport but a look at the gold letters on his bathrobe 
shows a participation in several varsity athletics. Jack will carry his spirit of

of all. In three years he failed to miss even a single hop — if not dragging, he was 
stagging, or should we say wolfing? He was the foot-loose and fancy free man in 
our room. Jim stood well up in his class despite his troubles with math, and if he

Naturally, his early ambitions aspired after a career in the Army, but sensibly he

ability to master any situation without any noticeable change of stride. An ap- 
preciation of the more concrete pleasures of life, such as hunting, fishing, and es-

Oaying "Goodbye" to the region made famous by Mark Twain, Jim 
abandoned the muddy waters of the Missouri for the rolling swells of the bounding 
blue. Previously an honor student at Kansas City's Junior College, the Academic 
department presented no serious obstacles to him. Jim was versatile at golf as well 
as tennis, and possessed a flair for the artistic. His daily letter to his fiancee was 
a vital factor in his life, and his obsession was figuring out how two can live as 
cheaply as one. We have enjoyed his stay with us and are looking forward to his 
companionship in the fleet.

.Lvet" was a character of many facets. He vigorously pursued any 
endeavor he undertook, never doing anything by half measures. He doted on math, 
and his quest for all kinds of knowledge was boundless. He read everything from 
Astounding Stories to mathematics and Greek philosophy. Det always kept his 
roommate posted on his current readings by volunteering numerous quotations. 
Never was there a platitudinous moment when he was around. His tastes in 
music inclined toward opera and Deanna Durbin. He had an active interest in 
football, tennis, and basketball, although his desire to play football failed to 
materialize because of an injury.

he made the most of every opportunity to drag. However, when not on the golf 
course or dragging, he could usually be found on his bunk listening to the radio 
with the current "Book-of-the-Month" in his hand. His ability to concentrate 
made the academics of the academy quite easy. "Watertight" was a welcome 
member of any discussion or card game, and his sense of humor and his judgment

the cradle of the metropolis of Texas — Henderson. After eighteen years in "God's 
Country" our hero hung up his spurs and saddle and mounted the stagecoach 
which was headed for Uncle Sam's School for Boys. Here he made a name for 
himself in the foreign language department — oh, what a name! His stories of the 
Lone Star State and of those beautiful Texas gals will never die — any deader. He 
held the record for "hot dogs" devoured in one sitting — fourteen. His favorite sports: 
eating, sleeping, and blondes will probably make the rest of his life short but sweet.

busy to aid a puzzled classmate with any difficult problem. On the athletic field, 
Bull's physique and courage brought him many honors. An injury youngster year 
curtailed a very promising football career, but battalion basketball, wrestling, and 
softball have proved his prowess. In the more gentle fields of activity, "Bobo" 
dragged not often, but certainly well! A brilliant student, a stalwart athlete, a

and has made things a lot cheerier for his many friends. Athletically, Jim followed 
the family precedent of lacrosse and, without previous experience, landed on the 
varsity Youngster year. During the off-season, he played basketball. Academics 
never bothered "Jad," so his correspondence and social activity were unhampered. 
If one considers his conversational ability and good nature, and overlooks his 
somewhat gruesome taste in records, he was a perfect companion.

not so outstanding in academics as was his brother's, has been highly creditable 
in the field of athletics. Excelling in swimming, he was elected captain of the '43 
team. Football, also, has been one of his favorite sports, but it was greatly sub- 
ordinated to swimming. One who thinks always before he acts, "Lee" will always 
be capable of cool and deliberate action at any time and at any place.

Texas U. nearly broke his heart, Joe took it in his stride, passing this tragedy off 
with a "Well, we played at Austin," flavored with sorrow and a long Texas drawl. 
After two years of Chemical Engineering at Texas A. and M., the academic 
departments held no terrors for Joe. Quiet, unassuming — yet we know that to give 
Joe a job is to be sure that it will be done. This ability, coupled with his acceptance 
of things as they are, will take him far in the service. '

JJill's most marked inborn trait is his diligence. His love of hard 
work was clearly shown by his excellent records in cross country and track. After 
serving three years as an enlisted man he came to the academy with an understand- 
ing and a love for the Navy that has only been strengthened by his stay here as a 
midshipman. His frankness and sincerity may sometimes be misunderstood, but 
his square dealing, his tactful manner, and his captivating smile, won him a place 
in all our hearts. Surely there is a place of distinction for him in that service he 
loves so well.

EUGENE JAMES HUNTEMER 

Wayne, Nebraska 
staunch supporter of his home state, Jean will always take time 
out to tell you "how they do it back in Nebraska." Easy to talk to, and a grand 
person to live with, he made many close friends, both among those at the academy 
and the drags he favors on the weekends. An athlete of no mean ability, he played 
basketball, winning three awards, and helped out the battalion track team. 
Besides being an athlete, he has, by his efficient way of doing things well, earned 
the unjust reputation of being somewhat of a cut-throat. Jean is sure to be a success 
as an officer and we sincerely hope to be his shipmate someday.

ERWIN SHAW JACKSON 

Ashland City, Tennessee 
hen it comes to people who make life a little more enjoyable, 
you can put this Jackson boy on top of your list. Perhaps it is the effect sunny 
Tennessee has had upon him, but whether it is a bull session, or round at the 
canteen, he is a ready mixer and always ready to make a joke as well as to take 
one. Organized athletics were not in his line, but he'd take on all comers in any- 
thing from tennis to bridge, and give them all competition. Sailing was his real 
interest and he would rise at all hours to race. A red Mike? Just ask any of those 
belles from Tennessee he dragged. 

EARL BANKS JOHNSON

Oandy, as he is known to most of his classmates, is a true Southerner. 
His ability to relax and enjoy most any situation gives him a personality that is 
always cheerful but definitely distinctive. He is an ardent reader of books and 
magazines, but his greatest enjoyment probably comes from building models of 
various sorts, for at this he is very efficient. When it comes to getting mail, Sandy 
is certainly a cutthroat, for many are the times that the mate has given a sigh of 
satisfaction as he unloaded upon Sandy's desk enough mail to make an outsider 
think he was president of the Superman Club. Certainly when Sandy is enumerat- 
ing his many friends, there is one which he would never fail to mention . . . his bunk. 





DONALD RICHARD JONES 

,^ Indianapolis, Indiana 

JL/oc might have been a great fencer or trackman, if he hadn't 
sensed that dragging would be his chief pleasure. Early plebe year he turned from 
athletics to letter writing, in order to lay the groundwork of an outstanding career 
as a "snake." Natural ability made it easy for him to be one of the Chess Club's 
leading players, and accounts for his later election as its Secretary during youngster 
year. First class year found him pointing for one of the leading parts in the Mas- 
queraders. But his real energy was expended in searching out the great truth of 
his life . . . that a Virginia girl is tops.

three wonderful years. Savvy? His class standing shows that. Personality plus? 
Ask his multitude of friends. Hoiman's activities were numerous: plebe lacrosse, 
battalion lacrosse, press detail, and pep committee. His first love, the Reception 
Committee, gave him the rating of Battalion Chairman during first and second 
class years. Junk's three years here were divided between dragging queens and 
receiving visiting teams, and there is no doubt that he was successful in both 
fields of endeavor. 

ROBERT DUANE KARL

In the summer of '39 there emerged from the badlands of South 
Dakota a blonde, genial farmer preferring the call of the sea to a career 
in the cornfields. Swede has made a wonderful wife, always willing to lend 
a hand, whether it be on a juice prob or financing our dragging weekends. He 
never was much of a snake at the academy, so we very seldom saw him favoring 
one of the fair with his contagious laugh and friendly philosophy. A thorough 
student of Nimrod, a lover of soft and sentimental music, an able but indifferent 
athlete, and a sincere and highly valued friend, that's "Swede."

Jrlarry hailed from the tip of southern Illinois, which he firmly

Mechanically minded, Harry breezed through most technical subjects, but the 
literary ones sometimes had him stumped. With his affections steadfastly secured 
back home to a certain brunette, he wasn't much of a ladies' man. Almost every 
afternoon would find Harry in his beloved shop, painstakingly making some intri- 
cate model, that he forgot as soon as completed. Steady and reliable, Harry was the 
ideal roommate for one who was exactly opposite and weak on the mechanical side.

St. Paul, Minnesota 
Juick and witty — that's our John. Possessed of a native intelligence 
which enabled him to grasp the gist of a long assignment in a few casual glances, 
this debonair product of the Minnesota Union spent most of his time making his 
friends laugh. Literature has its Benchley, Hollywood has its Hope, Radio has its 
Allen — all we need is John. He can be quiet and reserved too, when the occasion 
demands, but it's a distinct effort. His resources have not as yet been plumbed 
and we're looking forward to the great things that are yet to come from this friend 
of friends. We hope he drops that trumpet overboard. 

JOSEPH CLIFTON KEMP 

T Shreveport, Louisiana 

It all began in the summer of '39 when "J. C," as he is known by all, 
was recruited from the R.O.T.C. at Texas A. and M. The Army lost again that 
time, because J. C. has made a wonderful record here at the Naval Academy. 
Even with his acute lack of size he was still a boxer of no mean ability and a crew 
coxswain who could really handle a shell. A good bit of his time was spent dragging 
and very commendably too — mainly as a result of that very fruitful youngster 
cruise in southern waters. Aside from all that, J. C. was never found wanting in 
officer-like qualities — always a good shipmate and a credit to the service. 

EDWARD EARL KERR 
r-y, Houston, Texas 

JL here were no momentous decisions to be made when Ed received 
the opportunity to become a naval officer for he had set his goal many years before 
to achieve that ambition. This handsome lad came to us from the state famous for 
its beautiful girls, which may be one reason why he was so particular what girls 
he dragged. His principal extra-curricular activity was either dragging or sleeping 
(the way his cruise was spent) . A pleasing adaptable personality and incentive to 
work made him a welcome addition to any company, whether sailing, dragging, 
or just indulging in an ever present breeze session.

mysterious spirit of the Navy reached out and touched 
"Kirch" while still a senior in high school. From that day the struggle began, and 
it was not until two years later that Bancroft College opened its doors and per- 
mitted him to enter. Since then his continuous battle with the Academic depart- 
ment, the Medical department, and his receding hairline has kept him fairly well 
occupied, but he still found time for a maximum of dragging with a minimum of 
cost. His extra-curricular activities included nothing requiring physical exercise, 
but he did, at times, desert his sack and books to serve on the Reception Committee.

unrelenting system of naval life. A product of the Middle West, B. A. was de- 
termined to prove that a plainsman could become a good naval officer, even if he

"Brother" could squeeze into and talk himself out of most situations. His acid wit

During their appropriate seasons Joe could be found playing battalion football, 
basketball, and Softball. His pleasing personality and cooperative nature were 
invaluable assists in his work with the Log, Reception Committee, and Press Gang, 
and should insure his success for a brilliant career in the Navy.

a basketball player, his lightning-like passes and keen eye placed him on the 
varsity. For a hobby he was usually playing Beethoven or boogie woogie on the

and won him many friends, in whose memories of academy life Las will live forever.

Whether on Lake Superior or Chesapeake Bay, sailing has been his hobby and his 
principal source of real pleasure. From it has come his love for boats and the sea. 
Not troubled too much by his studies, he spent his spare time fencing, sailing, or

ISIick" left the chicken business in Texas to become a sailor. With 
a year at Texas A. & M. as a military background, he was well prepared to face 
the rigors of the Naval Academy. Nick's cheery smile and willing hand made him 
a favorite with everyone. Always able and ready to assist an applicant for help on 
that tough prob. Nick proved himself the ideal friend, classmate and roommate. 
A fall afternoon would find him out on the field punishing the soccer ball. Well,

have lost a great gunner, but the Navy has gained one swell fellow.

.J." was a swell guy, generous and easy to get along with. Although 
he stood high in the class, he could have been called neither slash nor cut-throat. 
He did whatever was given him to do quietly and efficiently. As a plebe he took 
an active part in battalion basketball and plebe track. After plebe year, most of 
his activities were in unorganized sports — and bunk drill. He was a well-informed 
and enthusiastic sports fan and can always be counted on for the straight dope on 
the baseball and football teams. His weaknesses were boogie woogie, the St. Louis 
Cardinals, and the St. Louis Blues.

hese few words can't begin to let you know the man, but they can 
let you know about him. Jimbo is one of those quiet, serious boys from the deep 
South. His naturalness, sincerity, and real sense of humor will keep on bringing 
him close friendships to add to the many he made at the academy. At one time or 
another he served on the Reception Committee, attended Spanish Club, played 
tennis, became a golf addict, and wore stars. Bowling, bridge, and good dance 
music were his pet pleasures. Jim's one ambition has been to make a Naval officer 
worthy of his own and his country's ideals.

lettcrman back in Michigan at Escanaba High, Warren's athletic 
interests here consisted of track and cross country. To these he added his services 
on the Reception Committee. In the "two-in-one" year he turned to the gentle- 
manly sport of golf, where his tremendous drives and unerring chip shots earned 
him quite a reputation in the battalion. Warren did not know the meaning of the 
term "red mike." During the week he gave his all for academics, the battalion, 
and his career (they do not pass out two P. O.'s to all Second Classmen), but on 
the weekend one would find him enjoying the company of some lovely young lady.

1 jy these words you shall know him, "I'm going to break somebody's 
back." Strangely, though, it was his own back that got the workout, either on the 
athletic, field, over at the crew house, or in the gymnasium. Big, powerful, and 
rugged — "Omo" took the path of most resistance, and a three year crew man 
emerged. Few things had the power to perturb him, and few of them did, but next 
week's drag, financial complications, and unnoticed Juice constants partially 
accounted for his ever increasing forehead. The envy of us all, he has that unique 
combination of attributes which leaves him best described as a Naval officer.

he came from the deepest South. From the land of the magnolias, he came to the 
academy to become a naval officer instead of a brick manufacturer. During those 
numerous free periods, you could always find Jack somewhere making a five 
bid out of a possible four. His favorite pastimes were bridge, handball, swimming, 
and reading. There was always time in his schedule for plenty of fun and a good 
time. Jack is constant and sure in his duties. In the race with the Academic depart-

and a sharp eye and left with the promise of a bright future. Quick to find the fun 

in life, his dry humor always proved a tonic, and, although his somewhat silent 

and unassuming ways at first proved deceiving, a glance at his album soon set us 

i aright. We admired him most, however, for the broad and complete perspective

be dependable and reliable, while his fellow officers will find him to be a true friend.

"that of course, but a great deal more," a sincere enthusiasm characterized Dick 
in any activity no matter how small. Never bothered by academics ("I'll spot 'em

was a joy to behold, and he worked hard justifying it. Not the least of his attributes 
is a genuine love of his work, and in a few more years the Navy will have another 
"salt horse" officer to handle a diplomatic post or salvage job with equal skill.

disposition was as sunny as he was fond of hunting and fishing, and that's saying 
a lot! Though not exactly a six-footer, Tommy was every inch a man. All three 
years he was out for football and baseball and it follows that he found it much 
easier to bat a .340 at the plate than he did to star in the section room. His three

athlete, a swell sport, and a true friend in every sense of the word.

big boat sailors at the academy, Jimmy did not let this passion interfere with work 
on the Reception Committee, Quarterdeck Society and quite a few battalion

was successful, yea, even prominent, in his editorial positions on the Log, Trident, 
and Lucky Bag staffs. Many of our class had their one and onlies — John was no 
exception. Back in Podunk Center John made his choice early in life- and was 
eagerly looking forward to that permissible hour when he can say, "I do." Perhaps 
we have here a future combination of a Shakespeare and a Beatty.

he aever came close to either. Dragging was another item which failed to bother 
him — he could take 'em or leave 'em alone. Rasputin had little luck in his attempts

nothing to do with it, for getting high marks was Rib's greatest claim to fame. 
Perhaps it came from the yearly gym and swimming tests, Bill's pet aversions. 
Maybe it came from the assortment of blind drags he escorted to hops on the rare 
occasions when he gave up his usual Red Mike existence. Or possibly the fault 
lies in the hours spent on the Log and Lucky Bag. Bill, however, had a better

nevertheless gave extra-curriculars a prominent spot in his schedule, and most 
afternoons saw him in the gym under the basket. His position on the Trident 
business staff was less active, but nonetheless responsible. The pleasanter of 
"Pop's" pastimes were sailing, reading, and a monthly effort to drag. As with 
many of his classmates, popular records of the sweet swing type were appealing to 
Ham. Not many of us, however, hold pilot's licenses, and, with his, Ham is

his intercollegiate boxing career with only one defeat, and the spring found Bill

which pays dividends in the long run. This son of the plains found his love in 
sailing, and although his swimming prowess earned him his "N," the salt air and 
the blue sea rolling beneath a trim academy yacht truly captured his fancy. But 
wherever his love for adventure and travel leads him, and whatever he does, no

his choice of career without fear of mistake.

expressions, "It was fruit" or "Oh you Bucket, you." Extra-curricular activities 
for this mountaineer were somewhat limited due to his attraction for the sub

awake during study hour. The Norske splashed his way to an "N" with the Navy

ocundity to the n'th degree — that's Siny thru and thru. A born 
jitterbug, he amazed us not only with his dance steps, but also with his variety of 
fancy dives in the natatorium. A year of college helped him to beat the system, 
and gave him plenty of time for his favorite sport, swimming. Whenever anything 
strange, tricky, or difficult came along, from a new dive to a new line, Siny was 
the man to try it. Confining his snaking to one coast at a time, he only dragged 
every other week, but the gals weren't any happier to see him than we were, and 
we are glad he came in with '43.

lVlake the most of your opportunities." So said Harry, and he 
practiced what he preached. So short he was just about a fifth platooner, but 
wound plenty tight with energy, drive, and purpose to get the most of what the 
academy had to offer in athletics, studies, aptitude for the service, and stripes. Hard 
work gave him a good class standing. Dancing, sweet music, and bite-size women 
his pastime. Swimming, soccer, and lacrosse were his big sports. His ambition is 
a post-graduate course in engineering at MIT, and then in the Navy a lifetime 
of hard work and advancement in aeronautical research.

Ocott comes from Painesville, Ohio and was among the first of '43 
to enter the academy. He spent a year of Junior College at Culver Military 
Academy and one at Cochran-Bryan Preparatory School. Plebe summer he played 
basketball and tennis and continued these sports plebe year. He played B squad 
basketball youngster year and was on the varsity tennis squad. During his few 
spare moments you could find him either writing letters, reading, or sleeping. He 
dragged occasionally and spent what leave he had at home swimming, dancing, 
or ice skating. Here is hoping that the future holds a continuance of a personal 
friendship with such a swell shipmate.

Hoosier from Old Purdue, "Archie" brought with him a love for 
the great outdoors and an excellence in archery and small arms. His energy and 
thoroughness knew no limits in his complete mastery of his subjects of interest. 
His tenacity of purpose and perseverance won both our admiration and respect. 
Often seen with the fairer sex, among whom he was a favorite, George coupled a 
love of dancing with an irresistible charm to make him a favorite dragging com- 
panion. A sympathetic roommate, a considerate upperclassman, and a keen dis- 
cerner of the truth, he will be an officer desired as a shipmate and sought as a leader.

dealings with athletics were confined to battalion wrestling, and each year, he 
groaned successfully with the best of them. In spare moments, Smitty could always 
be found catching up on the latest literature. When did he study? We.ll, Dago

ability to pick up a book and lay it down again in one motion, having seen 
enough for a 3.2.

although Tom left the blue grass with regrets, he carved a per- 
manent niche for himself at the academy. As a plebe he played football and then 
later battalion lacrosse and wrestling. His last winter was spent on the varsity 
wrestling team. During odd seasons, T. J. either played tennis, golf or worked out 
in the canteen. Plebe math had him worried, but from then on things went well. 
With a suave southern manner and a witty remark for most any occasion, he was

knew Tom liked and respected him and were proud to introduce him as a classmate.

In our three years at the academy, George helped many of us stay

always the last to admit it. He is, doubtless, a better bridge player than swimmer, 
yel our hats are off to him for his steady plugging along toward a sub squad 
promotion. No "N stars" on his bathrobe, but the gym recognized him as an old 
friend. He always did satisfactorily in dragging and never found himself in want 
of friends or companions. We all wish him the best of luck and agree that he will 
make a fine shipmate anywhere.

rigorous life as a Navy Junior made easy for Steck the adjustment 
to academy life so hard for most of us. Forced to spent the better part of plebe 
year in the hospital, Bob had the audacity to take delayed exams and emerge 
with his stars. Bob worked with the Spanish Club and the Quarterdeck Society; 
wrote occasionally for the Log, and won his numeral in fencing. Possessing an un- 
canny ability to see things quickly and explain them logically, Steck gave generously 
of his time to those needing assistance. Particularly fond of classical music, Bob 
left a large portion of his monthly insults with the disc merchants on Robber's Row.

of making everyone his friend. His good nature and affable character were un- 
marked by the "system." His name will be legendary on the extra duty field and 
his technique of indifference to studious effort was envied by all who worship the 
god of 2.5. To the cause of sports George has devoted much time and one of his 
favorite front teeth. Basketball and baseball were his major interests.

wanted to see the opposite of conservatism, Dutch was your man when he was 
out for a good time. There wasn't anyone who enjoyed a good bull session, or the 
companionship of the opposite sex more than Dutch. Swimming, track, and

Oow Jack managed to stand near the top in almost every class with 
a minimum of studying will ever be a mystery. Perhaps he got the secret from his 
alma mater, the University of Texas. Although his entrance into the Naval 
Academy radically changed his plans to become a sportswriter, Jack missed few 
major sporting events at the academy. He tried a few sports himself, but, not being 
of varsity caliber, contented himself with being one of the mainstays of the cham- 
pionship company soft ball team. His partiality for Texas girls slowed his dragging 
efforts somewhat, but he was usually there when the band started playing.

he "Reverend" came from the hills of Tennessee, choosing a 
Naval career over the life of a minister. He arrived full of ambition and, despite 
finding himself on the tree more than occasionally, his spirit was not dampened a 
little bit. "Old Swink" exhausted his athletic abilities in the pursuit of swimming. 
He never quite caught up with it, and the sub squad was his favorite pastime. On 
the average, Frank dragged about three times a year, but when he did it was 
really something. Another thing peculiar to most southerners was also his — there 
was no place like Dixie. However, "a more amiable rebel there never was."

sneak off to his "B" den in the evening and emerge with a wild look in his eye 
around taps with a howl "Gosh, it's tough!" Nordakota, as he calls it, claims him. 
He never tires of stories of hunting and fishing and once almost enticed his city- 
bred wives into a week of roughing it. Here his hunting has been confined to the 
female of the species. So far the results are indecisive, but we have complete con- 
fidence in "Little Punchy." His dormant talents in basketball were awakened 
second class year — successfully. Tiger is regular guy — to all a real shipmate.

Texans he was inordinately proud of his home state, reciting her praises for hours. 
Also in keeping with being a Texan he liked to shoot everything from a 14 incher 
to a .45. Being good natured, quiet, and easy-going, he managed, somehow, to 
stand around the middle of his class. His interest in athletics never got far beyond 
the theoretical stage for his time was spent in avidly pursuing various hobbies 
such as photography, dragging (usually blind), and telling those tall tales in true 
Texan style. He will make a competent Naval officer and a fine shipmate.

vjt pulled in from the foothills of Indiana about three years ago 
and earnestly settled down for a day or two of diligent study. Flaming locks and 
freckles just don't combine with academics so "Red" quickly sought diversion in 
wrestling, golf, billiards, snaking, and buying jitterbug records. He is probably 
tops in the academy as far as the cue and chalk are concerned. "G's" famous crack 
through the years was, "I just don't let this place get me down." Smiling at 
occasional academic scares here and there and more than his share of fraps, "G" 
was strictly a whiz in infantry before he got out. True to his code, he didn't let the 
system get the best of him, and the ship that gets the genial red-head will be lucky.

.Dry Kansas has its Landon and Willkie but when mention is made of 
good Kansas Republicans, "Tommie" must not be left out. Besides being a rabid 
Republican, Tommie played a bang-up game of soccer and lacrosse, and, to 
complete his versatility, he could triple-tongue a cornet with the best of them. 
Academics worried the Kansan very little, yet he never failed to consider his 
studies number one among his interests even if Amazing Stories did run a close 
second. When the judgment day comes around, you can bank on Tommie getting 
a share of his due reward for hard work and fair play — he will have earned it.

is well liked by everyone. If you would like to have a real good game of squash or 
would like to hear some of the best swing records, come around and see Tol. 
Being an unwavering believer in quality before quantity, his hobbies are few, his 
principal interests being mid-western women and dragging. With his determina-

his classmates elected him as their representative on the Ring and Hop Committees, 
the two most important committees upon which a midshipman may serve. A

of academics. Earl starred in varsity baseball and basketball. These sports, how- 
ever, scarcely show the extent of his athletic ability; he could compete with the 
besl in golf, tennis, and swimming as well. His native wit, sense of humor, and en-

high standard of good sportsmanship and never a dull moment was to be had when 
he was included in a little get-together. Spending much of his time at studies, 
Chuck, nevertheless, could always find a moment to build a model, draw a

_L exans, like monkeys, are peculiar people. Why so many of them

never stop talking about Texas and its wonders; yet they can point out that half the 
present admirals came from Texas and the next half will undoubtedly come from 
there — presumably meaning themselves. They seem to take kindly to study and 
academics — many star men and stripers. Somehow the academy does accomplish 
a transition from their cowboy boots and bowed legs to Navy officers in the finest 
sense. Yes, "Tut" is one of them.

refused to do things conventionally. It must have been his eternal desire to inflict 
self-punishment that made him shave before reveille, refuse candy simply because 
he liked it, and derive his own mathematical formulae. He was convenient to have 
around because of his abundant supply of soap, razor blades, shoe polish, and 
other necessities of life. His greatest joy seemed to be in watching us suffer from

delving into his private library and the most recent issue of Time. Most battalion 
sports counted him a charter member. He would have been a perfect roommate 
if he had only played bridge so we wouldn't always have had to pursue a fourth. 
As for his way with the women, all we know is that every Saturday found him either 
dragging or stagging, depending on finances only. He likes the Navy; it will like him.

energies elsewhere. Boat Clubbing, working for the Reception Committee, and 
editing first and second class years in the Lucky Bag furnished considerable diver- 
sion, but fencing was his forte as witnessed by the "N" gracing his bathrobe. A 
true epicurean, Dick firmly believed in a weekend every week, and still found

Napoleon, Ohio 
^uiet, easy-going, and one of the best friends you could ask for. 
These words sum up quite nicely Woody's better characteristics. Athletically, he 
played tennis, basketball, squash, and handball, but on many afternoons it wasn't 
hard to convince him that a bunk session was the best idea. Average as a student, 
studies never interfered with any other activities he might be interested in. Many 
evenings he could be found playing those soft, dreamy tunes and thinking of that 
"Bowling Green brunette." Although Woody is more democratic than military 
in nature, his knees won't tremble when he's firing those 16 inchers.

DAVID PURDY WYNKOOP 

Traverse City, Michigan 
Lichigan State lost him and we got him; that's Davey, blond 
hair, a big smile, and a joke we've all heard before. From the beginning the 
"Koop" felt that studies were just a necessary evil, and consequently he wasn't 
bothered with stars on his collar. Dave's greatest love was golf, but the same trick 
shoulder that forced him to quit football lost him his place on the golf team. We 
couldn't help liking Wynkoop even though his blunt remarks continually deflated 
our ego. He was a steady fellow who liked to see things done thoroughly and 
efficiently, and we look for Dave to get to the top in any field that he chooses.

MAURY FONTAINE YERGER, JR. 

Vicksburg, Mississippi 
ith a backward glance at Mississippi State and Kappa Alpha, 
the "Little Un" invaded the U.S. Naval Academy, planted himself firmly, and then 
defied the world to move him. Taking all challengers, he quickly disposed of 
academics and moved into the boxing ring. Here his success was even more pro- 
nounced, being undefeated when intercollegiate boxing was discontinued. He 
seldom dragged but was always in love, remaining true to that sweet girl back 
home. At the academy he greatly missed the country club and the night clubs at 
home; but he will always have them for he is ever to be associated with the elite.

HERBERT ERNEST LOUIS ZASTROW 

,^, Lakemills, Wisconsin 

r rom the nation's dairyland and recently the leathernecks, Herb 
joined the Navy. He learned the system before the greater part of the new blood, 
then discovered studying was no great task for him. During these years he lived 
nearer the stars than the trees, and accordingly found time to enjoy life. For the 
most part he just took things easy, but about once a year he limited his activities. 
During plcbc year and second class year he played battalion football. His true 
love, however, was outdoor rifle in which sport, he felt quite natural. Three years 
in the Navy still didn't make him a sailor though — once a marine always a marine.

ALEXANDER PHILIP ZECHELLA 

Newport, Kentucky 
m easy going Kentuckian, Zeke was an advocate of the live and 
let live policy — but not on the gridiron! Football — and Jean — was his first love, 
but out of season he had three years of battalion track, one of battalion wrestling, 
some ketching and a Lucky Bag job to his credit. An outstanding plebe back, he 
was dogged by injuries the next two years. In spite of hard luck, he came back 
strong to make the powerful number two backfield and play three quarters against 
Army for that coveted "N*." Many opponents will remember him as one of the 
hardest hitting guys they ever met, and his teammates, as a really sincere friend.

Talladega, Alabama 
'Zeig" is to know a true gentleman of the South, well- 
bred, refined, and considerate. Although a versatile athlete, a soft bed caused a 
lack of demonstrations. He did rise long enough to "swat 'em out" on the diamond 
plebe summer and "crash the line" for the Fighting Fourth Battalion second class 
and youngster years. The deluge of letters and his locker door spoke for themselves 
concerning the fairer sex. A dash of quick cooling temper made him a marvel at 
defending the wrong side of an argument. His broad smile, ready friendship, and 
willingness will make his every goal easily attained.

>eing one of that happy throng known as savvy, Bob soon found 
that his natural ability and intelligence were made to order for the Naval Academy. 
The essence of understanding coupled with his cheerfulness soon stamped Zell as 
an outstanding leader. Without a worry for the next day, from the start he has 
been carefree. He could put up a good debate with anybody except his father who 
knew all the angles, having turned out three star athletes before Bob came along. 
And Bob was a star athlete, for he was a stellar end on a winning football team, a 
varsity basketball player and captain of the team first class year.

jNOl AJL.L Or US who joined the Class of '43 stayed with us to that one broad stripe. 
Many fell at the end of plebe year, the casualty list mounted at the end of youngster year and a very 
few left us when the course was almost run. Reasons were varied and diverse: academic tangles, 
physical disabilities, civilian leanings.... Many went into civilian occupations, some were drafted, others 
became flyers and a few volunteered for foreign military service. Some left us early, many stayed for 
a long while, but none will be forgotten.

CLAUDE WILLARD ADAMS, JR. 

Montrose, California 
Ln 1 941 Science discovered a source of unlimited energy. Science 
called him miraculous, but his parents called him Claude. Before his discovery he 
was known simply as Claude "the Tireless." Never angry at anyone but himself, 
he was perpetually in action — Boat Club, the Log, Rifle Squad, photography; 
always ready to sing, to laugh, or to give a lift. To the casual observer, he was a 
ladies' man. Actually, he was one woman's man. Someday, somewhere, when the 
seas are heavy, and the word is "Enemy Sighted," someone will be amazed at 
Claude — confident, calm, defiant and determined, all that he should be — and more.

make friends. Always cheerful and able to smile, Bob was willing to lend anyone 
a helping hand. In football, baseball, and crew he distinguished himself with his 
capability, cooperation, and hard work. Although not a star man, his conscien- 
tious effort and common sense were assets in all his classes, and these same 
qualities will make him a successful officer and a well-loved shipmate.

he acquired new roommates, a new nickname, and the desire to be strong, healthy, 
and happy. He became happy at any rate when an early leave enabled him to 
enjoy both the beauties of Washington State and the joys of skiing at the same 
time. A star man, Jim has had small success at athletics although he tried hard at 
several. A good roommate, we feel sure that he will be a good shipmate and wish 
him lots of luck in his chosen ambition.

football, wrestling, soccer, and company Softball. Any Saturday afternoon you 
could have seen him at one of the local jive dealers in an intensive search for more

were full and enjoyable. Ability in track, swimming, soccer, et al., made his after- 
noons busy ones and a genuine appreciation of all kinds of music coupled with an 
active interest in the NA-io rounded out the cultural side of his existence. We 
remember him for his academic ability, his sincerity, and his fundamental ambition

chance, he spent his time outwitting the academic board by keeping "sat." In 
his spare time he gave his company a boost by putting out a "max" in baseball 
and pistol. Dan was a voracious reader and an authority on the printed word — 
excluding, of course, all things remotely related to texts. He must have been a

never altered his course; result, "N." If Maryland had trout streams, his only other 
activity would have been fishing; but Nature forced him to substitute sailing, 
bowling, stamp collecting, or just plain bunk drill. One of the last of the Red 
Mikes to succumb, he still got his quota of mail and locker-door pictures. Studies 
came easy so he devoted his time to giving unofficial extra instruction, or arguing 
the countless merits of California to a midwestern wife.

was academic, athletic, or just plain "getting along." Bill's record was impressive, 
his attitude modest. He was likable, understanding, and friendly, characteristics 
which spontaneously attracted people and made him a true pal to them all. Bill's 
record in football, basketball and track is too lengthy to be done justice here —

As a "snake," "Soupy" could not be surpassed. If there were girls, he was sure to

his nicknames were misleading, found the hops with their smiling beauties far too 
important to risk such troubles. This carefree lad was naturally little disposed to

for surf-boating and sunshine, soon convinced him that there was no place like 
the "Golden State" of California. A good athlete, Ed spent his time at his best of 
sports — gym, where following certain primitive instincts he took to rope climbing, 
and from a look at the record didn't do bad either. When not hanging around the 
gym, Ed managed to always keep busy at a lively game of bridge or to demonstrate 
his ability as a sailor in one of the academy's small boats.

FRANK HOMEWOOD DEAN, JR. 

^ T Long Beach, California 

INo state being fortunate enough to claim him, Skip came to our 
abode on the Severn after a life absorbing the lore of the sea as a Navy Junior. 
He lost little time getting the jump on academics and always gained his share of the 
honors. Activities were his glory — in athletics, it was swimming and softball; in 
extra-curricular work, it was tinkering with the Radio Club, ketching with the 
Boat Club, and welcoming with the Reception Committee. Yet he still found time 
for mastering Blackwood, buying "hep" records, dragging his O.A.O., and proving 
that such versatility can produce only the best shipmate. 




ARTHUR DIIRCK, JR. 
" j Los Angeles, California 

Jug," a true Californian, valorously and vociferously defended 
his home port against all comers. The Dutch in him admitted a certain sedateness 
and the joy of pipe smoking as well as a temper that flared at "the injustice of it 
all." Coordinating hand and mind, he could turn out models and drawings with 
amazing speed and exacting neatness. "Let's do the job right," he said. He read, 
discussed and practiced photography ad infinitum. Cameras were neat "jobs" 
and photos, good "shots." Not athletically inclined, he worked out to dodge the 
various squads or scared up a game of badminton. Long interested in aviation, he 
has sprouted wings to his future.

eashore to make a good Naval officer. Studies were never too hard for Stub, and 
even though the Math department never thought too highly of him, we know 
better. Always read) to try anything, he went out for the battalion lacrosse and

Joe, a native Californian, entered the academy after two years of 
university life. Plebe year found him taking an active interest in sports — cross 
country, track, and a bit of boxing. He was prevented from more active participa- 
tion on the varsity track squad youngster year by a foray with the skinny depart- 
ment. On rainy days and weekends, he could be found answering his fan mail, 
relaxing to the strains of a swing hit, or indulging in a game of chess. Joe made 
many lasting friends during his course and is a sure bet to succeed in his chosen 
profession, the Navy.

JCollowing two older brothers, Bob came to dear old U.S.N. A. 
Although academics were of minor importance, he won his stars with a minimum 
amount of effort. While the rest of us would struggle with our slipsticks, Bob would 
amuse himself reading Cosmopolitan, Weird Stories, and other works of culture, 
pausing intermittently to help the rest of us "buckets." Whenever he felt the urge 
to exercise he would lie down until this feeling passed. He has a keen interest in 
photography, and his slides have entertained many. Among his activities were the 
Stage Gang, Reception Committee, Log, Photographic Club, and the Lucky Bag.

touch football, model airplanes, and the gym. Plebe year he learned to fence and 
earned himself a permanent place on the sabre team. Youngster year he took up 
blind dragging, and after three 4.0's in a row he gave it up to keep from spoiling 
a record. Gail was an enthusiastic member of the Boat Club and often made 
weekend ketch trips. On top of all his other activities, he played tennis for the 
plebes his first year. His dying words, "No, I'm not losing any hair!"

W here you from, Mister?" "Just name a place and I'm from it." 
And so Jim embarked on his career. A claimant to residence in the Golden Bear 
state, Jim came into these gray portals from Lake Bluff, Illinois. The academy was 
just his style, for while here he sailed through all academic, extra-curricular, and a 
few of his own activities. Not lacking in athletic skill, Jim banged away with the 
best of them in lacrosse. One great distinction is his — that of maintaining one, and 
only one, picture on his locker door. It is not wasted breath to say that Jim will 
keep on in all lines in the "Great Outside" just as he has here.

Oreaking his neck skiing down the sides of Mt. Hood wasn't exciting 
enough for Cordon, so he left the freedom of Reed College to be a salty sailor of 
the Severn. Maryland being what it is, he turned to soccer, swimming, and crew 
to keep his joints from rusting. Even with Cosmo, Gordon diverted enough of his 
efforts to academics to have his collar bedecked with stars. As for social companion- 
ship, Gordon always seemed to pick the fairest of the fair. The wardroom will be 
a great place with Butch as a shipmate — his wit, personality, and general good- 
naturedness will liven up any ship he's piped aboard.

times battered and bruised, he always managed to emerge victorious from his 
bimonthly skirmishes with academics and keep a determined chin above the sur- 
face. Devoting his afternoons to exercise, he was a hard man to beat on the tennis 
court. It was inevitable that he turn to the sea to follow in the footsteps of his father. 
Three years at the academy proved him a valuable shipmate and a loyal friend 
which he will continue to be, from China to the North Atlantic.

While here Pete showed the Academic department that there isn't a subject in 
which he can't star. Athletically he has participated in battalion wrestling, soccer, 
and Softball, and played handball on the side. The rest of his spare time was spent

J^en comes from Baldwin Park, which he says is the hub of the San 
Gabriel valley. With him, he brought a harmonica, the usual description of Cali- 
fornia, and an overwhelming desire to drag blind. Gifted with a brilliant intellect, 
he managed successfully to combine a maximum of bridge, reading, and sleeping 
with a minimum of studying. Nevertheless, he still stood in the top hundred of his 
class. In keeping with his plan of conserving energy, Len confined his free time to 
battalion teams, later to writing statements which foiled the Executive department. 
Such versatility enhances his value to us and to the service.

at anything, although he sometimes claimed that the mere fact of his remaining 
at the academy without bilging puzzled him now and then. That, of course, was 
pure modesty, for Dan has stood high in his class since plebe year. Dan's splendid 
work as crew manager for three years over at Hubbard Hall rated him a niche in

heart and many a salty tale on the tip of his tongue. Fiery red hair gave him a 
slight edge to an otherwise even disposition, and made him ever ready to engage 
in any altercation. When not engaged in an afternoon discussion, he could be 
found on the cinder path running the mile for Navy and his coveted "N." Willie 
didn't need an act of Congress to make him officer material or a gentleman, and 
he will always be a welcome addition to the ship in which he serves.

too facile and quick for his own good at anything new, he dabbled with academics 
as well as tennis, rifle, Trident, Movie Gang, and the Sound Unit. He never had a 
home town, and doesn't know quite what it would be like. Somewhat self-conscious 
and reserved, he kept back quite a bit and stood to one side out of the rush. Never 
believed in getting excited about anything, and kept cool most of the time, except 
when the "Irish" came out. He can do pretty well if he tries and ought to get pretty 
far in the future.

ing skis to a deck under his feet. In his favorite hobbies, skating, skiing, and geology, 
(don't forget sleeping), one can easily see a strong tie to an early life in the Sierras. 
Although not known as a snake, he did quite well on the dance floor and rarely let

has done much to keep up his perpetual spirit at the academy. Always the last 
person to get started any place, but sure of getting there, he managed to get in his 
share of basketball, soccer, Softball, and handball. Grk's other major pursuits 
were dragging and breeze sessions. With his ability to make friends, George is

basketball were his sports. Women were his life. From Tucson to Philly the fan mail 
poured in. It irked his wives but he reveled in it. He said even in his sleep "You

used his head for more than just downing his academics. His red hair stood for all 
it implied in spirit, initiative, and originality. A good student, he stood well up in 
his class, taking the three years in an easy stride. Bob was a good swimmer, having 
earned his numerals with the plebe and battalion squads. Athletically, his greatest 
interests were tennis and squash, and, considering time and interest, dragging was 
a major activity. Not an ordinary seaman, he has qualified in the Boat Club as a 
handler of practically anything that sails.

preparation for a Naval career. That he stood well within the first one-tenth of his

of damnyankee (born in Massachusetts), and vain westerner (coming from 
California as he does) tempered by his two years at Georgia Tech where the real 
groundwork of his career was laid. Pistol, swimming, and sailing took up "Joe's" 
extra time. Just crazy enough to be a good aviator, he hopes to make Pensacola soon.

petitor by virtue of his diligent study. It is this quality, combined with his ability 
to get along with people that will make him a success wherever he goes.

Lere is a man who is willing to stand up for his beliefs in any com- 
pany, and at any time. An alert brain, coupled with a driving ambition and in- 
spiration from a beautiful young lady, place Mac in a well deserved spot near the 
top of his class. Whenever he wasn't swimming or working out in the gymnasium 
(which was seldom), his afternoons were spent in a religious observance of "bunk 
drill." Always with a ready smile, Mac is sure to win his way to the top of the ladder 
of success. Someday we'll admit with pride that we knew him when. . . .

sandblower in stature, but a first-platooner in manliness and 
character was the Irishman, "McQuink." After two years at New Mexico Military 
Institute, and another at Washington "U," he brought his Irish qualities to the 
Naval Academy. His sincerity, strong convictions, and good manners, combined 
with an outward display of indifference made Bill a study in character. Battalion 
tennis, lacrosse, and a fondness for bridge, reading, and friendly argument took 
his spare time. Without a drag Bill was a confirmed redmike, but he told me to 
tell you: "there are more beautiful women in Salt Lake City than any other 
citv in the world."

Academic departments only a year to even that score. Battalion football occupied 
most of his spare time, but George spent a great deal of his inexhaustible energy 
trying to convince us less fortunates of the perfection of California. His knack of 
imitating almost anyone you wanted to hear, and a talented rendition of popular 
songs carved a favorable impression on our memories. Big George will be carried 
successfully over difficulties by his wit and optimism.

Ix. conjecture of interesting possibilities would be that of determining 
"Mitch's" potentialities, his latent talents. In three years evolution, from a product 
of the clean wide open spaces of Utah, "Mitch" has shown himself capable of most 
any and every undertaking. He dissipated his desire for action by zealously playing 
lacrosse, tennis, basketball, and in sailing, and his desire for mental stimulation in 
bridge and reading. His eagerness to participate in any enterprise, and his friendly 
spirit have won him innumerable friends. Perseverance and sincerity of purpose 
combined with inherent ability and appearance, bequeath to the Navy as well as 
the girl back home, a man with a brilliant career.

J\ good gun, a load of grub, and ample time; what say? Let's hit 
for the hills, where the tall evergreens reach skyward, where the skies are your 
blankets at night and the game is ample but smart." When "Foxy" left the rugged 
peaks of Washington to cast his lot with the seagoing lads, he left behind memories 
which refused to die. Undaunted by the academics and those lovely creatures 
termed women, his life at the academy has been a happy one. Mike's activities 
included football, wrestling, Company Pistol Team, and the Spanish Club. 
The cheerfulness, humor, and a happy-go-lucky outlook which so characterizes Mike, 
has proved a "find" for the many friends who know him. When the ducks fly high, 
let's hope Mike will be there.

If you don't believe Jerome is from Butte just look at the mail on his

counted out plebe year by the Academic department. The Irish in him has taken 
charge since, and the storm was weathered. Not even two months in the hospital 
could keep him down youngster year, although it did hinder his soccer abilities. 
Flying home every leave should not be any drawback when he starts after his wings. 
Here's hoping we see you at Pensacola. However, though some of us may not see 
him for awhile, all of us will remember his contagious happiness and humor 
throughout the ensuing years.

ELWOOD EDWIN NUTT

-Ld came to the Naval Academy from California, bringing with him 
an excellent taste for swing music and a passion for painting. He first set his eye 
on the gentlemen's sport of sailing and immediately took the sailing coach by 
storm, so that in spite of no previous experience he made the sailing team along 
with the experts. His non-dragging weekends were spent racing on the big boats. 
When the urge struck him, he would break out his water colors, and the products 
of these times often found a place in the Trident. Ed's ready wit and bridge ability 
made him a good companion for any bull session or card game.

PAUL EDWARD PADGET 

Lander, Wyoming 
..oaring in from the sage covered plains of the West, Paul met with 
but one setback at the Academy; the Executive department would never let him 
don his "levies" for Saturday noon inspection. Such frustration only caused him 
to expand mightily into other fields: athletics, academics, and conquest of the 
feminine heart. Paul took many a bruise in a score of battalion sports, but always 
managed to hit the other guy harder. Classmates marveled at his ability to "figure 
everything out" after reaching the section room, and he possessed an uncanny 
technique in making two dates for practically every weekend.

Jriow I hate this Navy." By these words you shall know him. But 
lei us remember that he who complains the loudest loves the Navy the most. This 
was Joe. The Navy is his life and without it he would be lost. Joe studied hard and 
played hard. He was never on good terms with skinny but, just as in many a wres- 
tling match, Joe emerged the victor. We'll remember Joe for his encylopedic mind, 
ability to fix anything, love for music, and his determination and spirit on the 
athletic field, be it in a friendly game of tennis or in a battalion football game. The 
fleet lost a good enlisted man but will receive in return a splendid officer.

name by the girls of his home town. Girls arc often wrong; and in this case the 
nickname is not at all fitting, for Pete is a 6' 2" package of" Swedish manhood. 
One of Pete's favorite subjects is educational administration. He has often been 
overheard discussing the educational system of the Naval Academy. When Pete 
wasn't rolling the: boys in the aisles with his wit he was usually found playing basket- 
ball, fencing, arguing, thinking about his girl back home, or playing his fiddle. 
It is safe to say that Petsie will be remembered.

XJ-is father gave him a service rifle barrel for teething and a saber 
for a rattle. It was in this atmosphere that his first words were spoken, "I'm goin' 
in the Marine Corps." All discussions of Naval interest have invariably ended in 
these same last words, and he has proceeded to give a good reason by becoming 
an expert with any firearm worth shooting. Both the small bore and outdoor rifle 
teams have profited from this skill. Classmates call him "Tommie," "T. L.," and 
a sucker for a blind date. Although he may be joining a companion service, we can 
still look forward to reunion with a fine shipmate.

Jungle Jim, the Beachcomber," — however contradictory, that's 
what we called him. The savages never saw him, but he's at home on any beach. 
An ambition since early childhood to be a handsome life guard was realized in 
his eighteenth year when he began work at Santa Monica. A member of Sigma 
Nu Fraternity, Jim matriculated at the University of California in Los Angeles, 
working summers and weekends on the beach. This life of comparative ease ended 
abruptly when the "Beachcomber" traded swimming trunks for blue service. 
"Jungle's" rugged nature has, however, been retained, with some of the roughest 
edges now smoothed out.

his share of dragging and every one was above 3.5, too. His spare energy was spent, 
during the last three years, in putting out the Reef Points for the edification of the 
plebes, as an active Boat Club sailor, and as a member of the Spanish Club and 
the Reception Committee. Bob's cheerful laugh and bright remarks were always

He was not the flashy type, but after close association his character was definitely

otherwise would content himself making sailing trips or developing pictures during

ANYTHING worth doing requires work, and the 1943 
Lucky Bag is no exception. Calling, as it did, for the 
utmost from both the Editorial and Business Starrs here 
at the Academy, it, nevertheless, would not have been 
possible without the wholehearted support of our adver- 
tisers, who have evidenced their interest in us as mid- 
shipmen, and their encouragement to us in our future 
in this most substantial manner. 

To them, we, the Business Staff, for ourselves, and for 
the Regiment of midshipmen whom we represent, desire 
to express our sincere appreciation, and the hope that 
they will find that their most substantial aid is justified 
by the finished product.

and we are proud that the 1941 Lucky Bag, 
printed by us, was chosen by the National 
Scholastic Press Association as one of the 
best annuals of that year. 

It is our hope that the 1943 Lucky Bag will 
rank equally as high, and join the group of 
"All Americans," many of which we have had 
the privilege of printing.

• In 1928 Curtiss -Wright produced one of 
the first airplanes designed specifically for 
dive bomhing, a maneuver conceived and 
pioneered by the United States Navy. 
Today's Curtiss Dive Bomber, the SB2C-1, 
gives America a weapon which, in its classi- 
fication, has yet to meet its equal in speed, 
range and striking power. This latest 
descendent of the long line of Curtiss 

C U RTI.S S 



"Helldivers" outspeeds its immediate 
predecessor by 100 M. P. H. — ■ flies twice 
as far — carries double the armament with 
twice the number of heavy bombs. 
The SB2C-1 is but one of seven types of 
modern military aircraft whose large- 
scale production in Curtiss-Wright's four 
great airplane plants is a contribution of 
first importance to National Defense.

New Blower Motors 



CLEAR THE DECK 



Today the blower motors, which formerly protruded 
from the end of the ventilator duct, have vanished 
from sight. In answer to the Navy's call to clear the 
decks. Sturtevant has designed a new type of blower 
and Westinghouse has perfected a new, smaller blower 
motor that fits inside the ventilating duct. 

In addition to saving valuable deck space, this new 
blower motor increases ventilating efficiency over 15% 
and reduces noise level by about 25' j . 

The development of this blower motor is typical 
of our response through the years to the Navy's call 
for specialized electric and steam equipment. And 
the millions of horsepower in turbine drives alone, 
which are powering the fleet, are evidence of out- 
standing dependability of Westinghouse marine equip- 
ment m service. 

Today, as always, Westinghouse engineering and 
manufacturing facilities stand ready to serve the Navy.

America's aviation industry still must achieve an almost 
undreamed of pace of production. As builders of Aerol struts 
for aircraft landing gear, it is our grave responsibility to meet 
the tremendous demands of an all-out war without delay! 

These demands will be met. But in addition to expanded 
personnel and plant facilities, another vital force has been 
enlisted to achieve this end — the subcontractor. 



Throughout the nation, subcontractors are working to produce 
over 250 different parts for Aerol landing gear struts. This is 
the American way. Because of the willing assistance of these 
subcontractors, America can rest assured that Aerol strut pro- 
duction will keep ahead to keep "em flying !

SERVICE OF ENTERTAINMENT 



Our country is at war. 

Everything else is subordinated to the total effort for an 
American victory. 

The duty of the American motion picture industry is to serve. 
This means direct help to our National Government, and a 
regular flow ot quality entertainment films from the studios to 
the theatres of the United States and those of our Allies. 

The motion picture industry pledges this service of enter- 
tainment as a patriotic responsibility. 

The all-out effort upon which the country is embarked re- 
quires contributions from everyone. Not alone must members 
of the armed forces and workers in factory and field shoulder 
this national task. 

Morale is essential in the success of the total program. In 
the strengthening of the national spirit there is need for proper 
entertainment and relaxation, for such surcease as is possible

ihirty thousand strong 



As each Army or Navy pilot takes the controls and roars up 
and away, thousands of unseen hands support him. These are 
the men behind the machines all over America who, day and 
night, are turning out the mightiest air armada the world has 
ever known. 

In the three divisions of United Aircraft alone more than 
thirty thousand are enlisted ... craftsmen to their finger-tips... 
all with their shoulders to the wheel, building for the nation's 
defense forces the finest engines, propellers, and airplanes that 
aeronautical science can produce.

ONE MORE DETOUR... 



SIX TIMES in a century-and-a-half, the 
swift and peaceful progress of America has 
swerved temporarily from its peaceful course 
... six times we have been detoured into war 
by enemies who misunderstood our love of 
peace, and interpreted it as weakness. 

After each of these historic detours, we have 
gotten back on the road again: the road that 
has led us to higher attainments than any 
other nation has yet attained. 

Once again we are on such a detour: in a war we 
did not seek, and which our enemies will one 
day regret seeking. Once again we have deferred 
our peaceful progress and have dedicated every 
effort to getting through that detour. And once 



again — when we are through — we shall turn 
our eyes towards greater horizons . . . towards 
new achievements through science and industry 
— new things for a new and greater America. 

Here at RCA, this is our creed . . . and we fear 
neither today nor tomorrow. We know that 
when this war is won, radio has many con- 
tributions to make to our way of life. New 
techniques of broadcasting. Television. New 
applications of radio science to industrial 
production. Facsimile . . . the list is endless. 

And we know, too, that the war will '** '*!** 

be won. That's as sure as History ; fyflHvk'- 

... as certain as the course of Amer- ♦ u.s. defense 

ican Destiny has always been! I......

Some Things 

NEVER GROW OLD 
. . . even in a Streamlined Navy! 

50,000 ton super-dreadnaughts . . . 400 mile an hour 
dive bombers . . . torpedoes . . . 14-inch rifles — the Navy 
today is a far cr\ from the days of John Paul Jones and 
"men of iron in wooden ships." 

But some things will never change. Equipment and 
weapons are stil! only as good as the men behind them. 
In the present emergency, the spirit of "I've just begun to 
fight '- — the pioneer virtues of courage, integrity and love 
c>t country — are still new. still mean the difference be- 
tween victory and defeat. 

Candles, too are '"old-fashioned"- — 
but still vitally necessary in emergencies. 
Every Navy ship carries a supply at 
all times.

Both Agriculture and industry 
have BIG JOBS to perform in 
our War Program, and both are 
finding in MM Twin City trac- 
tors the kind of power which f§£ 
gets jobs done — quickly, easily 
and at low cost. 

For 77 years Minneapolis-

ing every new economic situ- 
ation. MM Modern Farm K 
Machines have been an impor- Kj 
tant factor in making American S|* 
farmers the World's greatest 
producers of food and fibre. 

Today with a War Program calling for greatly increased production of 
FOOD AND FIBRE FOR VICTORY, MM Tractors and Machines will 
more than ever be given an opportunity to prove their extreme versatility, 
their ease of handling, their low cost operation and their capacity to 
produce.

For many years it has been our priv- 
ilege to provide a marine and indus- 
trial America with the finest engines 
that loyal labor could build. Now we 
have a new responsibility. Our entire 
resources and facilities are called into 
active service for Defense. * • In so 
doing we find double satisfaction in 
the tasks performed today. Develop- 
ing advanced production methods, 
for example, means first and foremost 
that the output of engines for the 



V& 



$>* 



U. S. Navy, Coast Guard, Army Quar- 
termaster Corps and British Admiralty 
will be speeded up. But it also means, 
in the years ahead, that production of 
Sterling Engines for peacetime pur- 
poses will be more efficient than ever 
before. * * All along, this has been 
the story behind the production of the 
new 12 cylinder Sterling "Admiral" 
— the engine which is being used to 
power speedy Motor Torpedo Boats. 
• * We have adopted highly exacting 



standards of precision and craftsman- 
ship that are rivalled only in airplane 
engine factories. We have made the 
"Admiral" amazingly light-of- weight 
in relation to horsepower developed, 
and into the "Admiral" have been 
incorporated the latest ideas in ma- 
rine engine manufacture. * • So while 
Sterling "Admirals" do their share in 
thwarting the menace of tyranny, they 
are also blazing a trail which marine 
engines can follow when peace returns.

Story of a night flight 

IT'S A TOUGH JOB . . . transcribing radio messages 
quickly, and legibly, in the blacked-out interior of a 
Navy bomber on night patrol. 

Any radio operator will tell you that it is no job for 
pad and pencil. 

It is a job for a special kind of typewriter . . . for a 
machine so delicately tuned that it will be instantly re- 
sponsive to the flying fingers of a Navy radio man . . . and 
so ruggedly built that the shattering concussions of gun 
fire and the shocks of hundreds of landings will not mar 
the smoothness of its operation. 

It is, in short, a job for the same kind of Royal Type- 
writer that you may buy any day in the week. 

This fact gives us, here at Royal, the greatest satis- 
faction . . . the fact that our standard, stock machines 
should continue in smooth, perfect operation under such 
grueling conditions. 

To us. this is convincing proof of Royal's right to the 
title: "The World's Number 1 Typewriter."

school and burning the midnight oil. 
As an ensign you've nothing to do but 
tight battles and catch up on your read-

that were current during World War I, 
published in the "Literary Digest,'' when 
ensigns acre graduating in 1916-1917.

perfectly cool — so cool that he fairly shivered.

"Ouit yur howlin'," cried an Irish recruit to his comrade who had 
just been -hot in the arm. "Look at Terry over there. He's just had his 
head shot off, and he ain't saying a word." 



A newlj enlisted recruit in the cavalry insisted that he had had 
orders to dismount, but on being questioned confessed that the orders 
had come not from headquarter- but from hindquarters.

own term-." 

"A peculiar thing about this war is that while some of the belligerents

Making Planes Safer 

KLIXON AIRCRAFT CIRCUIT BREAKERS 

Every day, more and more KLIXON Circuit Breakers are being installed 
in aircraft of all kinds — to provide simpler and surer protection for electric 
circuits. Used instead of fuses these breakers are more permanent and 
more foolproof. They are not affected by brief, heavy overloads which 
are not harmful. But they do trip out quickly when harmful overloads 
exist — thereby protecting not only circuits but the planes themselves 
from dangerous fires. 

Moreover, after a KLIXON Circuit Breaker does trip out and overload 
conditions are corrected the circuit is easily reestablished by simply pressing 
a button or throwing a toggle right on the panel board. Nothing has to 
be replaced. It is as simple as it is sure. 

Spencer Thermostat Co. also manufactures special thermostatic controls 
for cameras, radios, motors and generators, and other aircraft equipment.

LITTELFUSES are synonymous with the modern fusing of electrical 

equipment of the Navy, the Army, and the 
Air. This position was gained by constant 
concentration of specialized fuse engineer- 
ing experience. Littelfuse pioneered in solv- 
ing fuse problems of the Sendees in many 
instances. High mechanical strength — re- 
sistance to fatigue — long vibration life 
under severest conditions, make 




4 AG Aircraft Littelfuse. Note 
clear label. (Above) Non- 
crystallizing fuse element. 



// 




LITTELFUSES Standard— not "Equivalents 

Littelfuse Locked Cap Assembly, for instance, is a Littelfuse patent. 
Caps are securely locked, not cemented on and 
will not fly off. Fuse elements twisted at 90° 
brace against severe vibration. The non-crystal- 
lizing "Gooseneck" takes up contraction and ex- 
pansion. Such features make all the difference 
between Littelfuses and ordinary fuses. 
We make high and low voltage fuses for instru- 
ment equipment of all undersea, oversea, and air- 
craft and army ordnance — for radio circuits and 
control devices — panel mountings, extractor posts, 
fuseclips. Catalog on request.

Federal Services Finance Corporation has proven its loyalty to officers of the armed services by coming 
to the relief of those in Honolulu who had financed the purchase of automobiles through local credit 
agencies. When their families were evacuated following the attack on Pearl Harbor, these officers were 
confronted with a demand for payment in full. This Corporation through its Honolulu office, promptly 
advanced the funds necessary to pay off all such balances, thereby rendering a much needed service at 
a most critical time and without embarrassing details.

THE "AERO-THREAD" 
SCREW THREAD SYSTEM 

"Aero-Thread" Inserts, a basic development in screw threads, 
provide a thread lining for the tapped hole, which lining also 
engages the threads of the mating screws. These inserts are 
made of hard, smooth, precision-shaped wire in stainless steel 
or phosphor bronze materials. Protection of tapped threads in 
light metals such as aluminum and magnesium against wear and 
abrasion is secured at low cost with "Aero-Thread" Inserts. 
Increased holding power in light alloys and plastics is obtained 
and stripped threads reduced materially. 

"Aero-Thread" Screws and Studs, with their circular section 
thread form engaging the insert, have 100 per cent greater 
fatigue resistance and 25 per cent greater static strength than 
similar parts conventionally threaded. Thread seizure or galling 
is eliminated by the hard anti-friction surface of the "Aero- 
Thread" Insert. 

The "Aero-Thread" System is standard for replacement on all 
U S. naval aircraft engines, thus eliminating the over-size stud 
nuisance. It is also used in original installations by manu- 
facturers of aircraft engines, carburetors, oil filters, magnetos 
and other products. Send for Bulletin No. 234 containing the 
latest specification and design data on the "Aero-Thread" 
Screw Thread System.
